Really Empty
Sep 2020
We went during the fall and the beach was nice and quiet. It was extremely windy but there were storage sheds that you could use as a shield. The sand was soft and the beach was clean. During this time we saw maybe three other groups on the beach. It was way less crowded than the beach by the Rehoboth boardwalk.

Walked it today!
Nov 2020 • Couples
Parked on Queen Street in Rehoboth and walked to and through Dewey Beach on this wonderful, warm, sunny Saturday afternoon. We walked through to and Indian Beach for the first time. Not much garbage but still tendered nearly 6 lb of mostlyt nemesis: large, clear pieces of plastics. Lots of people with their dogsz many donning Covid-19 virus masks. All staying level-headed. Priceless.

Not for families
Jul 2020 • Couples
I personally would not recommend Dewey Beach for family vacations in season. It’s a bar town with little else to offer. In order to get a decent meal you have to go a couple of miles to Rehoboth, which has great restaurants.

Dog friendly during off season
Oct 2020
Just a nice place to take your dog during the off season and relax. Ocean and sand so not much to it.

Walking on the beach

Off season so not too crowded this beach is sleepy like the town but plenty of waves for surfing or wave running. Sand smooth and white. Clean but they do let dogs on

Super beach.
Oct 2020 • Couples
Excellent, clean, pet friendly beach in a beautiful setting. Not crowded like Ocean City or Rehobeth beach. Close to geat parks, Lewes and centrally located, only 1 hour from Assateague Island park.

wouldn't advise.

Terrible beach and water, the worst thing is that you get a parking ticket for nothing! and even when you appeal it, it is still declined without any explanation! very disappointed. parking is a good business there it seems. Horrible place if you want to go to the beach.
The town by itself is nice though, but too crowded for COVID times.. spent there 1 day, paid for parking, got a parking ticket for "parking - wrong direction" though I was parked correctly (perpendicular parking). so be very careful where you park and how..

Nice beach, crowded town (good for younger crowd)
Aug 2020
Had never been to Dewey before--my teenaged kids and I came for a quick mini-vacation since this pandemic has spoiled so many of our summer plans. While our hotel was fantastic (Atlantic View), the town itself wasn't what we expected. Super crowded (both on beach and in town), and it had a college-age/frat party vibe about it. The beach itself was decent--still possible to social distance but it was tricky at times. Loved the volleyball nets and food stands on the beach. We definitely preferred Rehoboth for the shopping and dining elements of our trip.

Love the dogs
Jul 2020 • Couples
We stopped here for two nights and enjoyed the morning and evening visits with the dogs on the beach. People were friendly and did social distance. There aren't many waves and no sea glass ☹️ but we enjoyed our time.
