Dewey Beach lies on a small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay, is about one mile long and only two blocks wide. Despite its small size and low year-round population of about 300, it is not uncommon for thousands of people to descend upon the town during summer weekends.

 The ocean is a haven for swimming, surffishing, skimboarding, beachcombing and just plain relaxing. Sailing, windsurfing, jet skiing, water skiing, boating and fishing are just a few of the recreational opportunities available on the bay. Restaurants and night clubs dot the highway.

While the town has a reputation as a magnet for partygoers, it is also a popular family resort spot, particularly because of its wide, sandy beaches, many hotels, cottages, and condominiums.

As is the case with most beach areas, Dewey Beach quiets down in the fall and winter, but there’s still lots to do. In fact, the fall months can potentially be some of the best for weather and warm water.

Dewey Beach was incorporated as a town in 1981. The town's first mayor, Bruce Vavala, reportedly spent his first day in office surfing.
