Named for Spanish-American War hero Admiral George Dewey, the coastal Delaware town of Dewey Beach is quite small (only one mile long and two blocks wide) and is widely known for its exuberant nightlife during the area’s warm weather season. As the “smaller sister” to neighboring Rehoboth Beach, Dewey also enjoys a beautiful stretch of beachfront and scores of fine restaurants and eateries, both on the ocean block and on the opposite side of Route 1, along the Rehoboth Bay. In Dewey Beach, you'll find an array of beachfront condominiums along with highly-coveted cottages near the water. This resort town is an extremely popular spot for partygoers and families during the summer, but also becomes pleasantly quiet during the off-season. It's a great place to spend time with the kids or escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

With very few exceptions, Dewey Beach homes for sale are built to take full advantage of this resort town's proximity to wide, sandy beaches and sparkling waters. As a result, the Dewey Beach real estate market is chiefly made up of charming seaside cottages, townhomes, and oceanfront condos. These represent a great opportunity to be in the heart of one of the state's most popular resort towns, and they make great investment properties or timeshares if you'll be visiting Dewey for a few weekends each year. Some of the resort-style features you'll find among Dewey properties include:
Wood burning fireplaces
Stainless steel appliances
Many Dewey Beach condos for sale sweeten the pot by offering amenities that you won't find in traditional family homes. For relatively low HOA fees, you can enjoy access to indoor saltwater pools, fitness centers, fire pits, bicycle storage, and community grills. Along with neighboring Rehoboth Beach, Dewey was also honored by the Natural Resources Defense Council in 2011 as having some of the nation’s best water quality, one of only 13 areas in the United States to receive such an honor. In the same year, Delaware's beaches—including Dewey—were named the best in the country.
