Nice Beach

Rehoboth Beach is a very nice beach but can get very crowded due to its location in downtown Rehoboth Beach. Great boardwalk to explore and plenty of kid friendly activities.

Although you get crowds from DC! It is still a great beach to go to in summer. You need to get there early for parking. We have seen porpoises just off shore. Although the water is a bit chilly, it is not bad on a hot day.

Not sure about people leaving 5 star rating. My only guess they didn't see anything else. We've been there in September and it was packed. I can only imagine Summer days. The beach is too short and water gets deep pretty fast. You can't really enjoy waves as they appear for a fraction of time because the surf line is... More

This beach is nice clean and calm. Very lgbt friendly and family oriented. Has a nice night life and has nice little independent shops/boutiques.

The walkway was super cool however, if you are driving then you have to pay for the parking cuz there are no free parking. For me the weather was chilled so cold and windy as well.

We love Rehoboth , we visit twice a year , we expect the parking to be bad in summer but now it's even packed in the fall. Good for business but a hassle to visit in the so called off season. Still a gorgeous beach and clean Boardwalk . We will always return .

My husband and I loved this beach. The Boardwalk was fun and the beach was really nice, not too wide, not too narrow, nice sand and great memories made here. We will go back.

I have been coming to RB since I was a little girl. My only complaint is how crowded it has become over the years. We tend to go in the off season more now. There are lots of good bars, restaurants, hotels, pizza, short order food and ice cream places. The ocean is usually fairly rough which older kids love... More
