    Bethany Beach has something for everyone, from a boardwalk to entertain, restaurants and cafes to refresh and the beach to relax. A day of restful seaside living is ensured.

    It's about 30 miles roundtrip from my place. It's a great spot to take a break. On the southeast side of the bridge is a restaurant and on the northwest side of the bridge is the marina restaurant. From Ocean City you can get here from the Inlet by taking the local bus to 146th street then transferring to the Delaware bus. There's a bus stop under the bridge along the western span of the bridge. The pedestrian path runs along the eastern span of the bridge. Bicyclist are required to use the bike lanes along the north or south travel lanes.

    There's also a campground on the southwest side of the bridge. You can use the Delaware bus to get to Ocean City Inlet, Rehoboth Beach Outlets, or the Lewes Ferry to Cape May, NJ.

    I'm surprised at negative comments. Was just there this week, and when I asked a librarian where to find the travel section, she walked me the whole length of the library to indicate which shelves. This library also has very rich programming - some of the best in Sussex County.

    We visit every time we come to Bethany Beach, which means 4 or 5 times a year. It's hard to believe how close it is to the main road in Bethany Beach / Ocean View. We see Great White Egrets in their nests raising their brood. Year round we see Great Blue Heron, sometimes as close as 20-30 feet. And on those occasions we don't see a lot of birds, it is just quite and beautiful. It's a great place to just take a few moments and relax.

    A visit to the Delaware beaches must include a stop in Bethany Beach. Day or night is exciting and entertaining in its own way. We love to stroll "The Boards" at night. There is always something of interest happening in this beautifully maintained and safe community. The beach is nice. The boardwalk is an interesting place to stroll with a variety of shops and eateries. ( We love Mango's!) Don't miss visiting this wonderful beach town when in the area.

    Drove 2 hours south to get here but it was really nice. Good breeze and a very easy trail. Mostly sand, crushed rocks and pine needles.

    Having lunch, 4 sandwiches and 4 soft drinks for a total cost of $91 including tip is ridiculous. I understand costs are up but i wont be back at the costs this place has for a sandwich, $16!! I’ll wait and go home and make my own for $2. Price gouging is nothing I will support.
