Nice beach

Very family and dog friendly beach. It's a wide beach and is groomed every morning. Not as commercial as Ocean City. We had a good time!

great beach, but there are no bathrooms, they have a small vehicle that goes up and down the beach all day selling Italian ices , would definitely visit again .

If you are looking for a quiet beach then this is it. There is no boardwalk, just the beach. Parking may be hard to find depending on the time of day but you will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of just the waves rushing to shore. Umbrellas are for rent for a nominal fee.

Dewey Beach was a great place to unwind. The beach was nice and there was plenty of nearby entertainment, as well as shopping.

Small beach town with good restaurants and close to the amenities of rehoboth beach. Beach less crowded, wide, free. It has a party reputation but was peaceful for us.

I love Dewey Beach. Its calm, not overly crowded and relaxing. You can rent umbrella's on the beach for $12.00. We stayed until 8:00 o'clock and witnessed the most beautiful full moon.

Clean, not too crowded on a weekday, loved not being blanket to blanket . Room to spread out. Clean, family friendly, etc. Would recommend for families and older couples.

Love Dewey Beach! It's clean, dog friendly, and just a short walk to the ocean. They also offer activities like movies on the beach & bonfires. Dewey is not as crowded as Rehoboth Beach has been during our trip. We will definitely revisit in the future.
