As you enter Dewey Beach on Route 1, you see the signs that say: “A Way of Life”.
If you have not yet experienced this way of life, you’re missing out. Located just south of Rehoboth Beach and 5 miles north of Bethany Beach, Dewey Beach packs tons of beach fun, nightlife and unforgettable experiences into less than one mile.
Most of Dewey Beach is ocean side sunrise living to the east and bay side sunset living to the west separated by shopping, dining and nightlife along Route One. Unlike Rehoboth Beach, the beaches here are pet friendly year round and become a meeting ground for our beloved dogs before and after lifeguard hours. The beaches here are also rated among the highest in the country for water quality. You can easily park your car and walk everywhere you want to go or take the Jolly Trolley into Rehoboth Beach.
Paddleboard on the Rehoboth Bay, skimboard along the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, Grab a movie or a bonfire on the beach on family night or check out the hottest bands at the Bottle and Cork, The Starboard and Rusty Rudder. Events in the summer months include the East Coast Skimboard Championship and in the off season the Dewey Beach Music Conference, an Elvis Festival and Greyhounds Reach the Beach.
The area offers many options for the investor and vacation property buyers. Condos and townhomes are plentiful with less homes here than other areas. Prices on the ocean side are generally higher than those on the Rehoboth Bay side.
