Enjoy some downtime at Broadkill Beach

A tiny community nestled between the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge and the Delaware Bay shoreline, Broadkill Beach underwent something of a revival when a project by the country's Army Corps of Engineers saw its badly eroded shore transformed into a broad and beautiful stretch of sand. Once you find your ideal Broadkill Beach vacation rental, you'll find an array of activities await you in the water, with swimming, kayaking and surf fishing all on the agenda. For those who prefer to stay dry, rentals are a quick jaunt from a wide choice of Delaware delights.

Outdoor adventure in Broadkill Beach

Activities in Broadkill Beach are almost exclusively of the outdoor variety. Beach lovers can find themselves a perfect spot on the sand to settle in for a day of sunbathing, while more energetic travelers can head out onto the water to explore by kayak or stand-up paddleboard. If you don't have your own craft, rentals are easy to come by at the town's single general store. Those traveling over the Fourth of July holiday will find themselves entertained by a lively community parade and views of the fireworks from May, while soaking up Delaware's picture-perfect scenery is a year-round pastime.

Must-see attractions near Broadkill Beach

Broadkill Beach vacations offer a quiet and less frequented destination but still place visitors close to the attractions at the resort town of Rehoboth Beach. Here, you can meander through the shops, arcades and amusement rides that line the boardwalk, catch free summer concerts at the beach bandstand and check out the vintage postcard collection at the Rehoboth Beach Museum. At nearby Lewes, Second Street is lined with enticing boutique shopping, while Lightship Overfalls, a National Historic Landmark, offers visitors the chance to explore one of the country's 7 floating lighthouses that remain open to the public.

Broadkill Beach is a 4-season affair

Little compares to spending the summer in Southern Delaware when beachside communities come into their own and Broadkill Beach vacation rentals place you within a quick jaunt of them all. Sunny days over the summer slip into a blanket of fall colors from late September, bringing with it autumnal celebrations such as the family-friendly Boast the Coast Maritime Festival and the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival. The cooler temperatures over the winter months of December through February provide the perfect opportunity to tick the area's museums and galleries off the list before outdoor adventure arrives back on the agenda in spring.

Explore diverse landscapes near Broadkill Beach

The nearby Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge makes a stay in a Broadkill Beach vacation rental a great choice for bird and wildlife enthusiasts. Open daily, the refuge counts 6 miles of walking trails, an accessible observation tower and a photography blind among its highlights, although the real stars of the show are, of course, the red knots and American oystercatchers that call the area home. To the east, Cape Henlopen State Park offers fishing, hunting and horseback riding, while cruises on Delaware Bay and the Broadkill River offer a lovely way to see the landscape from a different perspective.
