You didn't say which beach you are going to. We have beaches from Cape Henlopen to Fenwick at the Ocean City Md border.Rehoboth's beach has just been rebuilt and is quite wide. The beach at Cape Henlopen had a bad winter and is quite narrow at low tide and almost gone at high tide. I understand Dewey Beach is in good shape also. Hope this helps!

Fenwick Island is a huge, lifeguarded beach with concession stands, showers, and will provide rented umbrellas if needed. The beach seems to go on forever even though everyone wants to pile up in the concession stand area at the ocean. Bethany Beach is a family oriented beach with many conveniences of shops, restaurants, and a public bathroom with a small boardwalk setting. Rehoboth Beach has just been replenished from erosion and has increased in size dramatically. It has a boardwalk with many shops, restaurants, and rides/games for the kids. There are also plenty of drinking establishments for the adults and can be fun people watching on the main avenue. Cape Henlopen in Lewis is actually a very large state park with concession stands, pavillions, showers, and a lot of history and nature observation areas, but, due to the piping plovers (sand birds) that nest there every year, you are limited where you can go on the beach areas which is ashame because the best beachcombing area is the same place the plovers decided to build their nest each year...otherwise you would be amazed at all the different shells and sea creatures you can spot on the beach at lowtide in this particular area. This use to be my favorite spot but, now I prefer Fenwick Island (the beach is very clean, large, and you can get away from the crowd). Dewey Beach is for the teenagers and "hungover if sober college crowd". Most of the kids that go to Dewey are looking for parties or trying to start one. Expect a lot of police in town and spot checks there (mostly for underage drinking). I don't know what your looking for but, I am sure you will be able to find a beach that suits your needs. Have fun and don't forget the sunscreen!
