Bowers-Beach is a unique seaside village in central Delaware that is divided north to south by the Murderkill River. Due to this division, one cannot travel from north Bowers Beach to south Bowers by car or foot - only by boat (without going several miles inland and back again.) The channel that divides the town is approximately a hundred feet wide. The permanent, year round population of Bowers Beach is only about 220 residents, but that number swells in the summertime. Bowers Beach is a working fishing village with a wharf and many sites for on-shore fishing, and very little commercialism. The town has owed its very existence for more than two centuries to the sea. Bowers Beach is one of the lesser known beaches of Southern Delaware, but it is a beautiful beach and rarely crowded. Nearby attractions include the Bowers Beach Maritime Museum in Frederica, the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail and the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is considered one of the best existing wetland habitats on the Atlantic Coast, perfect for birdwatching and wildlife viewing. Other activities at Bowers Beach includes peaceful walks on the beach, shelling, hiking, swimming, fishing and camping. Bowers Beach is located in Kent County, Delaware near the city of Dover.
