Fenwick Island

Fenwick Island

With a state park just next door, the bay as your backyard and a beautiful beach for kicking back, it’s clear why this laid-back beach town has become a family favorite for generations of Delaware visitors.

Fenwick Island State Park is a serene place to spend the day outdoors with so many opportunities for sunbathing, fishing, windsurfing and more. Family fun is around every corner with putt-putt, go-karts or waterslides at Viking Golf Amusements and Thunder Lagoon Water Park.

Tucked along the southern edge of the state, Fenwick Island’s many quiet beach homes and relaxing inns offer a different vibe and a respite from the crowded fervor of the town’s neighbor across the state line, Ocean City, Maryland.
