Are you dreaming of escaping to a place where the locals are friendly and things move a little slower? Perhaps the gentle ocean waves and charming, colorful beach huts are calling, asking you to take it easy for a while. Our Fenwick Island vacation rentals are the perfect place to get away from it all for a weekend—or longer.
The town of Fenwick Island—located on a barrier spit of the same name—is tucked in the southernmost region of Delaware, right on the Maryland border. Locals fondly refer to this area as the “slower lower,” and Fenwick Island’s laid-back atmosphere is a testament to that. It’s just under three hours from Baltimore, but you’ll feel lifetimes away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Relaxation is the name of the game in the slower lower. Spend your days lolling around nearby beaches at Fenwick Island State Park, where you’ll find less crowds and miles of sand and shore. If you want a little more activity, the town of Bethany Beach is just about a 15-minute drive from our Fenwick Island beach rentals. Here you’ll find a charming boardwalk filled with shops and restaurants. And Ocean City is just over the Maryland border, if you’re seeking a day-trip to even more hustle and bustle.
Looking for a little family fun? Head to Viking Golf, an amusement park located right in Fenwick Island. Challenge each other to a round of mini-golf or an exhilarating go-kart race. There’s even an adjoining water park called Thunder Lagoon, which boasts six waterslides, a Lazy River, a 2,800-square-foot activity pool, and a kiddie pool where the little ones can play.
Outdoor enthusiasts will love the opportunities to kayak along Little Assawoman Bay, where you can also fish and hunt for clams and crabs. The nearby waves of the Atlantic are a popular spot for surfing, kiteboarding, and windsurfing. Cyclists can take advantage of the beautiful views and flat terrain of Delaware Bicycle Route 1, where you can bike from Fenwick Island all the way to the Pennsylvania border.
When you start to get hungry, our Fenwick Island beach rentals are surrounded by top-notch seafood restaurants, serving fresh catches of the day. Grab a cocktail at one of the seaside bars as you watch the sun go down over the ocean, or catch a live performance at the neighboring Bethany Beach Bandstand.
We love Fenwick Island for its versatility. Whether you’re seeking peaceful beaches and some time with the outdoors or an activity-filled trip for the whole family, our Fenwick Island vacation rentals are a great choice. Browse our beautiful homes and condos today to start planning your trip.
