Nice beach

The beach looks like it would get narrow at high tide but's long. I need to go in the summer to see how crowded it gets.

You can walk up to Rehoboth or even down to the national seashore. It is beautiful and not crowded in the spring. Very wonderful experience.

Beach was okay but did not have the ambiance and charm of Lewes to the north or Bethany Beach to the south.

Quiet, clean beach in April. Nice walk on beach with hubby. Kind of rainy so not many people out. Not sure how crowded it would be during summer season.

Clean and not too far to walk to from the hotel we stayed at. I heard there are bonfires on the beach in the summertime. I cannot wait to go back.

Visited during the off season. Was really nice to have the beach almost to myself! Walked for miles enjoyed the waves and the frolicking Dolphins. A short ride to Rohobeth if you want more people interaction.

Dewey Beach is dog friendly in the off season and parking is free (Peak season is considered May 15 thru Spet 15)

I visited the beach during the off season. I really enjoyed my time on Dewey Beach. It was quiet and peaceful and though the weather was warm there were only a few folks on the beach -some playing with their dogs, some taking a quiet stroll, some frolicking at the edge of the water and others just watching the waves....
