We visited Bethany Beach for Labor day weekend. Love the beaches, the first day the beach waters were calm but the second day we were there the waves were huge and its a lot of fun if you like being in the water. We were a big group of friends and had rented a vacation rental which was a 10 minute walk from the beach. There are plenty of vacation rentals around the area. Must visit if you like beaches and it would be a good summer vacation if you are going with a big group of family or friends.
