1301 Coastal Hwy #462 dewey beach, DE, 19971View Listing
The Dewey Beach village packs quite a bit into a small package. Life in the coastal village is built around the beach - and what a beach it is. Dewey Beach may have gained quite a reputation as a party town, but the beautiful and wide sandy beaches are fantastic for beachgoers of any age. Dewey Beach’s location just south of Rehoboth Beach is unique in that it boasts wide views of the stunning Atlantic on one side of its narrow sandbar and the calmer waters of Rehoboth Bay on the other. The bay side is the preferred jumping off point for boaters and paddle boarders.
Dewey Beach’s main strip runs along a section of Delaware Route 1, right through the center of town on its way through to Delaware Seashore State Park and Bethany Beach. This central hub has become well known for its popular bars and restaurants that line both sides of the roadway.
Understandably, the Dewey Beach real estate market, much like everything else in the small town, is built around the beach. Dewey Beach’s very modest population swells by a considerable margin in the summer’s high season - between Memorial and Labor Day. Available properties are made up almost exclusively of charming beach cottages, not to mention a highly appealing collection of condos and townhomes.
The village’s prized position on the beach and predictable influx of tourists makes it an ideal setting for an investment income property. If you’re in the market for an investment, you’d have a hard time doing better than Dewey Beach.
Properties throughout Dewey Beach share a distinctive east coast cottage vibe. Features unique to properties near the beach include wonderful wrap-around decks, bright sun rooms and outdoor showers. The community’s collection of condos tend to feature even more in the way of building amenities, including refreshing salt-water pools, work out rooms and more.
Dewey Beach has garnered itself a well-earned reputation as a party town. The stunning beaches, wide selection of restaurants and bars and fun-filled summer events make for an irresistible hot spot. Young party-goers from throughout Sussex County and the sate of Delaware flock to the coast in droves as soon as the summer weather turns.
The small village’s main strip that runs along Delaware Route 1 has established itself as the epicenter of summer parties. Establishments such as the Bottle & Cork, the self-proclaimed “Greatest Rock and Roll Bar in the World” only add to this reputation. Also, unique events such as the annual Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach Running of the Bulls helps to create a unique and distinctive flavor.
In the off-season, Dewey Beach quiets down considerably. The crowds may die down but the community isn’t any less beautiful. Away from the beaches, locals enjoy great access to the numerous State Parks and nature preserves that litter the county. Among the most popular is Delaware Seashore State Park further down the coast to the south, as well as Cape Henlopen State Park to the north. Both are large and feature miles of hiking trails and preserved coastal ecosystems waiting to be explored.
