Dewey beach is the best beach in the area. People are friendly and there is plenty to do in town. With more restaurants staying open all year it is fun to be there anytime of the year.

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.
