Bethany Beach is, like a lot of East Coast beaches, a rich folk destination - especially someplace so close to the heavily populated NE and the liberal haven of Philly. So, this beach is not that great. It gets slammed by erosion that is valiantly...More

Crowded in the summer but still quieter than Rehoboth. We stayed at Sea Colony and had a wonderful week going to the beach, playing tennis, and swimming in the pool.

The post review questions asked if the hotel had a “Harbor View?” Well no but it has Great Ocean View! The Boardwalk is not large but offers everything you would want.

Bethany is a resort that is quiet off season with the beach not losing any of it's grandeur or beauty. Many local shops and restaurants open - simply relaxing.

Due to the sand replenishment the waves break on the beach. Your run is from the wave to the beach. Very short and dangerous. Great for families, quieter than Ocean City and Rehoboth.

Thef rules in place are no smoking on the beach, which is wonderful for the environment and good for non smokers. there are many dining options on and off the boardwalk. Lots of small stores to browse and paid parking UGH.

Great beach. Packed in the summer, but nicer and not as packed as the nearby beaches (calmer than Ocean City). Quiet and Peaceful in the winter.

A great all American town, a quiet resort with zero to no crime and an American Flag in every yard. We plan to retire here soon, God willing.

I don't think you could miss anything. If you are a large group or small group you need to check out a dinner place we visit often. The Bon-Fire Restaurant is located on 71st street in Ocean City Maryland. It will be a... More

Not in Bethany proper, but several close by: Giant, Weis, and Hockers. Also several smaller, quick serve types: Wawa, Dollar General, etc. Also many just a bit further out, 3 to 5 miles.

No. The waves break too close to shore for decent boogie boarding. Fenwick Island (south of Bethany) is a little better as is the beach up north by the Indian River inlet.
