“Fun Beach”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

When traveling to the area we typically stay in Rehoboth Beach, This time we decided to stay in Dewey. The beach was nice. There is no board walk and the shops are on the main road rather than the beach. It makes the beach feel a little more natural. During the summer dogs are allowed on the beach in the evening. There are snack shacks on the beach for convenience. We did not need to purchase anything so I do not know if the prices are reasonable. This summer they are offering a lot of family activities on the beach. They have weekly movies on the beach and bonfires for s'mores roasting marshmallows. The only thing that made Rehoboth a referable beach was the lack of public restrooms. Having young kids it is inconvenient to run a block and a half back to the hotel to use the facilities.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Very nice east coast beach. They have movies on Tuesday nights and a bon fire on Thursday evenings. It is a bit less crowded then Rehoboth.

“Great off season family beach”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Dewey Beach is a clean, family beach. One of the best advantages is that you can take your dog on the beach any time during the off season and early morning and evening during the summer. It's a fun time with dog and family events all year.

“Different experiences”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We have been fortunate enough to have access to a property that is on the beach for several years. We are able to go to the beach before it gets to busy. There are plenty of restaurants in the area, but this is typically a party beach when you are here during high-season. We also walked a path from Dewey to Rehoboth. This provided us with a wonderful day's walk, the opportunity to see two very different beaches and towns. We took the shuttle back to Dewey that night. It is easy to get between the two beaches.

“Nice off season get away. ”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

Nice beaches. Quiet in off season. A lot of restaurants in walking distance. Unfortunately, most of them are closed. Take a drive a few miles north and walk around Rehoboth Beach....but worth staying in Dewey for the discounted prices.
