Dewey Beach is a natural sandbar community with the Atlantic Ocean on one side of
the street and a bay on the other. This area is a popular vacation destination for
water sports such as skimboarding, windsurfing, and catamaran sailing. Sunsets over
the bay provide a romantic atmosphere and enhance the nightlife. Located adjacent
to Dewey Beach is the Delaware Seashore State Park. Here you will find a long stretch
of natural beach that offers several areas for four-wheel vehicle access and surf
fishing. A popular activity for vacation home owners and renters is treasure
hunting on the beach with metal detectors.
The vacation rental resort offers beautiful white sandy beaches and natural dunes
that abound with vegetation and wildlife. The beach parks surrounding this vacation
rental area offers homeowners and visitors a chance to feel alone with the sand
and surf. Cape Henlopen State Park offers open shoreline which is excellent for
crabbing, surf fishing, swimming or walking. Many vacationers seek this beach because
it is the home of the highest sand dune between Cape Hatteras and Cape Cod. This
"great dune" rises over 80 feet above the shoreline. The park also houses the famous
"walking dunes" and colonies of shorebirds. Another draw for the beach rental crowd
is a refurbished World War II observation tower which is open to the public and
is a featured stop on nature walks. In late fall Gordon's Pond offers bird lovers
an opportunity to observe the many wildlife species such as osprey, piping plover,
and occasionally an American bald eagle. In late spring, a little known activity
includes picking a local delicacy, beach plums, used for making jelly.
