Such a well kept and clean beach. Northern end by residences is especially quiet. Parking can be tight. Ideal if you can bike there. We just came out for a weekend but are definitely looking into a week long summer vacation.

Everybody that comes to the ocean in DE does something in Dewey. It's our party town and during open season it's a great place to people watch. Bar after bar, food, ice cream, movies on the beach, shops, bayside for docking your boat, small walk...More

Dewey is a clean and pristine beach! We loved our vacation there! People were friendly and the lifeguards were well trained and helpful. Can't wait to go back!

The beach is clean and family friendly. The lifeguards pay attention. The sunrise is beautiful in the morning and very inviting for a morning stroll.

A wonderful small and clean beach, where dogs are allowed during specific hours only. Great for watching the sunrise, and you will probably get to see some dolphins if you do!

We love Dewey beach. Nice and clean and water was not so cold and waves were perfect for kids to catch waves. Plenty of restaurant around to grab a bite. This is our 4th time coming to the beach. Will be back again!

Nearby Rehoboth Beach offers a...More

Clean beach with big waves. We had lots of fun body surfing! There wasn't anywhere close by to buy snacks or drinks though. Everything had to be carried in.

Much more family oriented than ocean city. We go to the "Park" and park. The cost varies depending upon if you are in or out of state. They offer a place to shower and a small concession stand.

Weather will be perfect. Not many people will be down, no crowds whatsoever. I think most places are still open at this time.

Your best bet is to call the Dewey townhall. I do know that before Memorial Day and after Labor Day dogs are allowed on the beach.
