Just off the southern shores of the scenic coast of Delaware lies the idyllic vacation destination of Fenwick Island. The tranquil beaches of Fenwick Island are lined with grassy dunes and scenic boardwalk areas perfect for biking, strolling, shopping, and picnicking. This friendly beach town has beckoned travelers for generations and is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway, a laid back family vacation, or a weekend with friends.
If you're planning a visit to Fenwick Island, consider staying in a vacation rental. A private beach condo or summer house along the Atlantic coast are often less expensive than hotels and offer the space you need to store your beach gear as well as luxury amenities like a kitchen and living room. Wake up in your private beach condo and enjoy breakfast on your balcony overlooking the ocean as the sun rises. Then head into town to explore the art galleries, boutiques, and cafes. Spend the afternoon on an emerald green Fenwick Island golf course or at the beach. After the sun goes down, return to your home away from home and host dinner for your family and friends.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip:
-Hike the trails: Fenwick Island camping areas and hiking trails are perfect places to explore the natural beauty of the island or spend a night under the stars.
-Go dolphin watching: Dolphins can be seen along the coast almost all year long. Charter a boat tour and head offshore to encounter them in their natural habitat.
-Take a dinner cruise: Raise a glass and enjoy a gourmet meal and live music on the deck of a luxury sailboat.
-Relax on the beach: Visit the local historic lighthouse, build a sandcastle, go parasailing, or just lie on the sand with a good book and a cool drink.
-Relax in the spa: Indulge in an afternoon of head to toe pampering with a manicure, pedicure, seaweed wrap, or hot rock massage.
Fenwick Island offers a perfect escape and plenty of fun things to do for every member of the family. The best way to enjoy it all is with a vacation rental just a few steps from the beach and within easy reach of your favorite activities. While you're visiting Fenwick Island, you may want to extend your trip and explore nearby destinations like Rehoboth Beach and Cape May.
