Bethany Beach Community Information
The town of Bethany Beach is located in Sussex County in the southeastern corner of Delaware. This cozy oceanfront community is one of five towns that comprise the state's beach resort area.
Along with South Bethany and Fenwick Island, Bethany Beach is part of the Quiet Resorts, aptly named for the low key, yet resort-like atmosphere that defines these towns. Real estate options in Bethany Beach consist of condominiums, townhouses, single-family homes, and estates.
Bethany Beach features a variety of stores and specialty shops, restaurants and family-friendly attractions for all to enjoy year round. There is a half-mile boardwalk where many special events take place, such as the Boardwalk Arts Festival. Additionally, live performances and music concerts occur regularly in the center of town on the boardwalk bandstand.
Home to approximately 1,100 residents, Bethany Beach offers an attractive housing market that's perfect for those looking to purchase a vacation home or looking to settle into a relaxing, fun-filled atmosphere idyllic for raising a family. In addition to the many recreational activities and water sports the Atlantic Ocean and the Bethany Beach Bay affords its residents and guests, Bethany Beach also offers a balanced business community, great schools, and easy access to larger cities and towns throughout the region.
Neighboring beach resorts such as Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach are more metropolitan and make for great day trips. Bordered by the Delaware Seashore State Park and a large unincorporated area of condominiums and beach homes, the buffer blocks out the noise and creates a peaceful and playful environment for locals to enjoy.
