Very clean beach. I was surprised how warm the ocean was late September.There are a lot of dogs on the beach,but did not bother me because I like dogs, and the dog owners were very responsible with their dogs.

Had a condominium on the beach. Walked out the door of the master bedroom & could watch the sunrise, let my pups watch people & enjoy a beverage. My 3 dogs love being on the beach.

The beach was very clean, not too crowded and literally steps away from our room. First time here but definitely won't be our last!

Dewey Beach is very quiet compared to Rehoboth Beach, and that's why I like it. The beach is great for walking and is apparently very popular with dog owners (we saw lots of them strolling behind dogs who were having a great time running along the beach) as well as sun-bathers. The town itself is very walkable and low-key.

I loved NOT being in the throngs of people that are in Rehoboth. Beach was very peaceful even when more crowded. Beach great for walking and collecting shells. Walking the town is no problem. Very pet friendly too.

The town of Dewey is a class act. Everything is clean and well organized. The beach is always nice and clean with well groomed sand. Great town with lots to see, do and eat. Restaurants and nite-life galore!

Pristine beach, soft sand and lots of shells. This is one of the cleaner beaches we've visited in recent years. It's definitely on our "must return" list!

This beach is just a mile or two south of Rehoboth, but it's much quieter. Has always been our spot. Big waves, Dolphins aplenty, and easy access.
