  • Our first visit was September 14 2016. The beach is beautiful and water perfect. Off season parking was easy. Access to the beach was good, but is a bit of a walk. Nice to have access to restroom and shower facilities
  • Nice clean beach. Plenty of parking, lots of lifeguards and beach patrol on duty keeping everyone safe. Look for the orange flag and you'll find the dog beach. Having a real bathhouse and food area is also a major plus.
  • Impeccably clean. Tastefully but not intrusively developed.
  • It is beautiful and clean and I always find a good spot to set up and enjoy.
  • Amazing compared to Ocean City. Not as crowded most of the time and is cleaner. Only complaint is that it costs $10 for a nonresident of Delaware to park there. It's only $5 for someone who lives in Delaware.
