This well-kept secret is tucked in the southern coast of Delaware, just over 14 miles from Maryland’s popular Ocean City. It’s just a day’s trip from Philadelphia, Baltimore, or Washington, D.C., and a great place for city-goers to escape the hustle and bustle. Best of all, Delaware’s year-round mild temperatures make a Bethany Beach house rental a perfect choice no matter when you visit.
Delaware may not be the first place you think of when you imagine a beach getaway, but that’s exactly what makes it so special. Bethany Beach is an off-the-beaten path destination, but the tourist-oriented atmosphere means you can have a vacation that’s as laid-back or activity-filled as you want.
Take a stroll down the town’s iconic boardwalk, which spans half-a-mile along the beach and is peppered with local establishments, from eateries to shops and more. Treat your sweet tooth to some saltwater taffy or, for something a little more high-end, you can dine on incredible seafood dishes at 99 Sea Level. The town bandstand is just off the boardwalk, and a great place to catch live music as you watch the gently rolling waves.
Challenge each other to a round of mini-golf at Captain Jack’s Pirate Golf, ride the Bethany Beach Trolley through the charming streets, or embark on a dolphin-watching cruise. History buffs will love visiting Fenwick Island Lighthouse, just minutes away from our Bethany Beach condos on the Delaware-Maryland state line. You can even book a session with a local photographer for family portraits on the beach, so that your vacation memories last a lifetime.
Between the charming locale, mild weather year-round, and fun activities, it’s no wonder so many vacationers have made Bethany Beach their travel destination year after year. Start making your own beach traditions—browse our Bethany Beach vacation rentals today.
