The small stretch of beach located in the “First Town in the First State” of Lewes is very different from the sands in nearby Rehoboth Beach and the other beaches that make up Delaware’s 26 miles of Atlantic coastline. First and foremost, it’s calmer and much quieter than its counterparts, because it doesn’t front the Atlantic Ocean but rather the Delaware Bay. This makes for a perfect location to sit and watch the sun rise over the bay or for walking the dog in the off-season.
From a real estate perspective, some of the area’s finest homes line the water east of Lewes Beach, between the ferry terminal and the entrance to Cape Henlopen State Park. You can see them when sailing the bay or when arriving on board the Cape May-Lewes Ferry. From many of these Lewes Beach homes for sale, you not only have a fantastic view of the bay, but also of the Atlantic Ocean to the east. It’s the “best of both worlds,” so to speak, and a big reason why Lewes Beach has become a very popular location for new homeowners to coastal Delaware.

Living on Lewes Beach
On Lewes Beach, you also have a magnificent view of the Delaware Breakwater, as well as the two historic lighthouses that guard its eastern edges. It’s also a nice place for relaxing while watching the fleet of the Cape May-Lewes ferry arrive to and depart from the Lewes ferry terminal. It’s also very popular with families because the smaller waves and shallower water allow kids to frolic about without parents having to be overly concerned with their safety. Lifeguards also protect the beach during the summer season, when the weather is warm and the beach is a little more crowded.
Lewes Beach is the absence of commercial eateries and other establishments. Unlike Rehoboth and Bethany, where the nearby boardwalks host a bevy of shopping and eating options, Lewes Beach is very quiet and serene. Many residents feel this is a good thing. The closest establishment is the Dairy Queen that rests near the beach’s entrance and is a very popular gathering place during the summer season.
