Small boardwalk with stores and restaurants. Small but not too small. Just right. Movies on the beach, marshmellow roast and venues at the bandstand.

Lovely family oriented beach. Parking is Hard during busy season but possible. Safe and quiet. Small boardwalk area with live entertainment during the summer.

A beautiful beach resort town that is family oriented. We enjoyed al that it had to offer, as well as proximity to other beach areas too. They need more public beach bathrooms and parking is a little crazy. If you come, try to get walking...More

I am not a beach person but my whole family prefers this beach to any other in De. It's small and pleasant and clean.

We decided to visit Bethany beach, staying at the residence inn right on the beach. This town is NOT dog friendly. Don't be mistaken. The hotel allows dogs with an exorbitant pet fee, plus a separate "cleaning" fee. The beach and boardwalk are not open...More

We also were there in May, and we didn't see any. I actually think it would have been neat! Just not too up close and personal. :)
