Dewey-Beach is a small coastal town located in Sussex County, Delaware. As of the 2006 census, the population was 311 residents. However, its not uncommon for 30,000 plus visitors to descend upon the town during the summer - especially on the weekends. Dewey Beach is located on a small strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay and is only one mile long and two blocks wide. While not as large or "wild" as Panama City Beach or Cancun, or even nearby Ocean City, Dewey Beach has become well known as a summer "party town." It is particularly popular with people from Wilmington, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington D.C. Numerous bars and clubs line the Coastal Highway (Delaware Route 1) which is the towns main street. Despite this, Dewey Beach is also a popular family resort area, due to its beautiful, wide, sandy beaches, large number of hotels, beach cottages and condominiums. A wide variety of recreational activities are available, including swimming, surf fishing, beachcombing, sailing, windsurfing, boating and jet skiing. The town is also the location of the annual East Coast Skimboarding Championships held in mid-August. Nearby attractions include Delaware Seashore State Park and Cape Henlopen State Park, famous for its "walkable" sand dunes and hiking trails. Dewey Beach is part of the seaside resort area that also includes the towns of Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island and South Bethany.

Dewey Beach Weather & Climate

Southern Delaware's weather is greatly moderated by the Atlantic Ocean. The state is the second smallest in the U.S., only 96 miles long and 9 to 35 miles across. Most of it lies within the Atlantic Coastal Plain and the climate transitions between a humid subtropical climate and a continental climate. However, despite its small size, there are significant variations in temperature and amount of snowfall among the state's three counties. Sussex County, which includes the southeastern beach areas, has a somewhat milder climate and a longer growing season than the northern part of the state. Summers are warm with occasional thunderstorms and July is the hottest month of the year. Southeastern Delaware tends to have the highest temperatures and more precipitation than the center of the state, with an average precipitation of 46 inches. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, although August is usually the wettest month. The whole state has mild winters because the mountains of Pennsylvania protect it from cold northwest winds. January, on average, has the coldest temperatures.
