Soak up some seaside solitude at Lewes Beach

Pristine sandy beaches meet 17th-century charm at this tranquil seaside oasis on the Delaware coast. A centrally located Lewes Beach vacation rental will put you just steps from historic buildings, top-notch restaurants, and quaint boutiques (which don't charge tax, so bring an extra suitcase). From sunrise to sunset, the sea is the main draw, whether you're looking to frolic in the waves or just soak up a few rays. Cape Henlopen State Park is a haven for birders, nature lovers, or anyone who just wants to get away from it all.

Sun, sand, and sea is all you need

One visit to Lewes Beach and you'll understand why the sea is the town's main draw. Pull up a beach blanket and just relax to the sound of crashing waves. Whether you're young or just young at heart, you could easily spend a day playing in the ocean and working on your tan. If you need a break from the sun, explore the historic buildings of the quaint town, which dates from 1631. Organized tour leaders are happy to show you around if you'd rather leave the planning to someone else. Breathtaking sunrise and sunset viewing make for perfect bookends to your day.

Whether a beach bum or history buff, Lewes Beach is for you

At Lewes Beach, visitors come for the sea and stay for the tax-free shopping. A centrally located Lewes Beach vacation rental will put you just steps from sandy beaches and historic 17th-century buildings. Kick back with locals and visitors alike at the public beach, or enjoy some me time and get lost in the miles of hiking trails, bird sanctuaries, and picturesque beaches of Cape Henlopen State Park. Your inner history nerd will love exploring the town's historic district, full of colonial charm and nautical history that dates back to 1631.

Coastal breezes and sunny summers make for easy living

From late spring to early fall, visitors flock to Lewes Beach to soak up the sun. Temperatures soar into the 80s in the peak summer months of June, July, and August, but pleasant coastal breezes offer beachgoers some welcome relief from the heat. Winter peaks from December through February, with temps dipping below freezing at night. You'll need to trade in your bikini for boots, but Lewes Beach vacation rentals are the most affordable at that time of year. From March to May and September to November you can stroll the beaches in solitude (but leave the swimming to the polar bears).

Crashing waves in a beachfront birder's paradise

Nestled on the Delaware Coast, Lewes Beach offers up clean sandy beaches and cool ocean waters. Typical of the Atlantic, the sea is a welcome respite from the heat in the summer months, but turns frigid from late fall to early spring. Coastal plant life flourishes along the beachfront nature preserves, which are a haven for your feathered friends thanks to protected bird sanctuaries. Don't forget to pack your binoculars for a spectacular birding experience when you're taking a break from the sun and sand.
