About Fenwick Island

With beautiful stretches of sandy beach and uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean, Fenwick Island is a great getaway for beach lovers. Legends claim that there are many pirates' treasures buried near the island. Fenwick Island is also a place where pirates are known to have hid from authorities many years ago. Settle in at your choice of Fenwick Island waterfront vacation rentals, and enjoy a relaxing trip to this quiet resort town.

Introduction to Fenwick Island

Each resort along the Atlantic Coast has its own unique identity, and Fenwick Island is best known as one of the Quiet Resorts. Along with nearby Bethany Beach and South Bethany, Fenwick Island is considered a more relaxing alternative to lively Dewey Beach, Delaware and Ocean City, Maryland. Visitors tend to seek out Fenwick Island for its surfing, swimming, and sunbathing on less heavily trafficked beaches.

The best place to soak up the rays or catch a wave is Fenwick Island State Park, which features three miles of barrier island. There’s plenty of room for swimming and sunbathing on this quiet white sand beach, and lifeguards patrol the area for a safe swimming environment. This is also a popular surfing spot, thanks to large waves and the beach recognized as one of the only designated surfing areas in Delaware. If you want to fish, be sure to purchase a surf fishing vehicle permit in advance.

Have Fun With the Family

Fenwick Island is a great place for family fun. For a family focused adventure, take the kids to Viking Golf & Thunder Lagoon Waterpark, which boasts giant waterslides and an 18-hole mini-golf course. If you’re looking for action, get extreme with watersports like jet skis or kayaks. If local culture is more your speed, head out on the high seas with Pirate Adventures, or spend an hour or two ...
