It seems more and more families are discovering this beach! Originally I chose this through internet search over Rehoboth and I am so glad I did! My family and I love this beach! Its best feature is the dog-friendliness and relaxed atmosphere. Not overly commercial...More

It's safe, there are dolphins every once in a while, and rarely crowded. You can laze around in the beach or swim... it's all good!

This beach is clean and had soft sand. Very family friendly. The life guards are great and so are the snow cone and ice cream deliveries!

Smoke-free beach which I know non-smokers prefer but as a smoker, I would've liked some kind of smoking area.

Dewey is a clean descent sized beach. The rules are definitely more relaxed here. So it seems that if you keep you're manors in place and respect that people are around you, you can pretty much enjoy the beach in whatever way you see fit....More

I would return to Dewey Beach over and over. It is a perfect couple's destination, for a few days away without the kids. There are bonfires and dogs allowed on the beach, which was extra fun to watch. If you like to spend your day...More

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