I am looking at vacationing next summer at one of the Delaware Bay beach towns...Slaughter Beach, Broadkill Beach, etc. We wanted to try something closer, but there aren't many "quiet" Atlantic beaches north of the Carolinas.
We have always vacationed on the Atlantic, mostly in NC or SC, and I am concerned about the difference in "beach experience" being on the bay. Is the beach sand? Rocky or soft? Is the water clear or full of floating grasses?
I understand there aren't any waves, per se, but is it still fun to go in the water? Do people swim in the water?
Any insights would be most appreciated!
