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!

Been to a few by far cleanest, dog friendly beach. The rental property we stayed at #1 Bellevue St. was spectacular, clean updated perfect stay!

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.

Weather will be perfect. Not many people will be down, no crowds whatsoever. I think most places are still open at this time.

Your best bet is to call the Dewey townhall. I do know that before Memorial Day and after Labor Day dogs are allowed on the beach.

I can't speak of water temp as we've only been there in September and it was 70+ Dewey Beach was the nicest beach of the five in the area we visited.
