I love the off season friendly local folks and their fur babies playing together ! If you like a less crowded and more laid back stretch of beach then this one is for you.

Dewey beach is still one of those unspoiled beaches with no high rises ruining the coastline. Great for families who want a quite, less face paced vacation.

This is a very clean and well kept beach. It is very family oriented. We had fun playing paddleball and riding the waves.

Dewey is the most dog friendly beach on the Mid-Atlantic. Great times, great pupster scene! Nothing like a sunrise dog walk on the beach!

I don't know the area very well, I only visited for a weekend, but I did see someone with a metal detector over on Dewey Beach. It will be less crowded/travelled than Rehoboth, which is the more touristy location.
