“Fantastic Beach for families”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Chazfan72 : I don't know where on the beach you saw trash but to me this was a clean beach and as for the water it isn't florida clear water but this is usually what the water is like for most part of the S.C. to Maine some places are better looking then others it sure beats NY water! Look I loved it, it was especially great for kids the waves weren't strong like in rehoboth are. Not as crowded but parking can be a menace if your not there early. Just make sure you pack food,snacks and drinks from where I was there was one little shack that sold food but not to much of variety but other than that I loved it. It was relaxing and again a great spot for people with families.

P.S. make sure you have money for parking meters. it's $1.50 per hr

“Terrible”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

When we visited Delaware, this is the first beach we tried. It made me want to pack up & leave! Metered parking that is over priced. The beach is filthy! Trash everywhere. Not maintained in any way. Trash floating in the water.

“Great Little Beach!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This public beach has parking adjacent to it, which makes it so convenient. It is well maintained, and the entire beach is raked clean each day.

“Lots of Parking”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Typical east coast beach, but lots of parking and very nice clean bathrooms. You can easily walk the few blocks to 2nd street where there are many restaurants and cafes/

“Easy to get to, pretty setting”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Lewes Beach is an uncomplicated, very accessible, and attractive beach -- maybe 1/2 a mile from the center of town. Good facilities, calm water.
