Great town to walk along ocean, woody grill, starboard, and many great places for food. We enjoy staying at the Surf Club oceanfront hotel, an efficiency directly located on the ocean.

Dewey beach is the best beach in the area. People are friendly and there is plenty to do in town. With more restaurants staying open all year it is fun to be there anytime of the year.

Pretty sure you can bring a cooler with food same as most beaches. Alcohol is not allowed due to open container laws. This beach would be a beautiful place to relax and picnic for the day. And if you need anything, there... More

I don't know the area very well, I only visited for a weekend, but I did see someone with a metal detector over on Dewey Beach. It will be less crowded/travelled than Rehoboth, which is the more touristy location.
