A favorite beach for generations of Delawareans, Lewes is a tranquil stretch on the Bay with plenty of space and a historic town behind. Families love it for the shallow waters, lifeguard oversight, and excellent facilities. There won’t be high waves here, the atmosphere is serene, and it almost never gets overcrowded. Also, you’ve got the picturesque Downtown of Lewes as an added bonus with its colorful old houses, boutique stores, and a kaleidoscope of fine restaurants. The beach is made for peaceful, contemplative leisure and is popular both during the summer and the off-season.
