We love this beach. Our grandkids really like it because it wasn't crowded and the waves were smaller

Our family loves Lewes Beach! It is a great beach for families with young kids because it is on the Delaware Bay and the water is calm with no undertow! Another plus...there is a nice Dairy Queen within walking distance of the beach!!!

Small, very clean beach nestled in the beautiful town of Lewes Delaware. Easy access, limited parking. Food near by. Just love it here.

Lewes is a lovely, quiet beach that is shallow enough for little kids to play in. We came on a rare 80 degrees day in October and you could walk ankle deep between sand bars. We were able to park right next to the sand....More
