We walked up and down the boardwalk several times during our stay in Bethany Beach. I hear it gets extremely crowded further into the season but in early June it was lovely. On the Saturday, there was an artisan and craft market all the way...More

Memorial weekend, so pretty crowded, but plenty of spots to stop and sit, and take in the views. Just not long enough to get a good workout.

This is a great little boardwalk for strolling and shopping. Lots to see - great little local shops and places to eat.

Not a heavily commercial/retail boardwalk. Most of the retail is in the neighborhood near the boardwalk. It has typical benches that, when available, are a nice place to view the beach and ocean. Usually a well-kept area for a short walk just off the beach.

This boardwalk is a joke- very small stretch with nothing but a few souvenir shops. There are a few more things to do on the road that leads to the boardwalk but it’s not right on the actual boardwalk.

Cute (but short) boardwalk with great views over beach. Shops and restaurants on or near boardwalk. One of the "quiet resorts."

It was still chilly when we visited the Boardwalk in Bethany Beach. It was very pleasant and clean. I like yo return when the weather gets warmer.

I visited here with my good friend and we walked the boardwalk and visited some shops. The boardwalk is right on the water and the day was beautiful, with blue sky and a soft wind. I loved every moment and would love to go again.

This is a great boardwalk, great little shops. I sat down on the benches listening to the ocean while reading a book on my kindle, it just couldn't get better. On Friday nights there are a bunch of giggling teenagers hanging in groups but we...More

I would estimate about 1/2 to 3/4 mile, but beautiful and interesting. In my opinion, worth the time.

No. This area is not dog friendly in the summer months. The beach is not dog friendly. I'd say that the entire town of Bethany beach is not dog friendly. Won't visit here again.
