The hidden gem of Dewey Beach lies along the Delaware Coast, just south of Rehoboth and Cape May. This quaint little beach town makes a perfect east coast vacation getaway for a few days or a few weeks. Come here to experience relaxed Atlantic coast living at its best. Dewey Beach offers miles of scenic boardwalk, protected dunes, rocky tide pools, and coastal wilderness areas. When you're ready to dust off the sand and head downtown, wander through Dewey Beach's quaint shops, local museums, historic sites, and charming art galleries.
If you're planning a visit to Dewey Beach during any season of the year, consider a stay in your own private summer house or beachside condo. The perfect vacation rental can offer all the amenities you and your family need and enough space for you to store your beach gear. Wake up in the morning and watch the sun rise over the Atlantic from your own condo's balcony, then put on your flip flops and head out into the sun and sand. Go deep seas fishing, tee off on a champion caliber golf course, or listen to live music at any of the area's popular music venues and energetic night spots.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip:
-Go parasailing: Experience the exhilaration of flight as you soar through the sky along the coastline.
-Go dolphin watching: Join a charter dolphin-watching tour and head into the deep water to see playful bottlenose dolphins interacting in their natural habitat.
-Experience a dinner cruise: Watch the sun go down from the deck of a luxury sailboat while enjoying world-class cuisine.
-Go scuba diving: Wreck and reef areas off the Delaware coast draw serious divers from all over the world.
-Visit the John Waples Memorial Playground: If you are traveling with children, don't miss a trip to this fun outdoor play space in a scenic setting.
-Relax in the spa: Spend the afternoon indulging in a manicure, pedicure, massage, and world-class pampering at a Dewey Beach Spa.
After a long day of sun and surf, head home to your vacation rental and host a barbeque or an evening campfire on the beach. Dewey Beach has been a popular destination for local families for many years. Come here and explore this local vacation paradise for yourself, and while you're in the area, spend some time in Rehoboth or schedule a day trip north to Atlantic City.
