Bethany Beach

Bethany Beach, along with its neighbor to the south Fenwick Island, together help form the region known as the ‘Quiet Resorts’. Bethany Beach in particular has grown in popularity recently as more and more people have begun to make it their year-round home. The town – like much of the Delmarva Peninsula – began its growth in the 1950s after the first span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was completed, making it practical for Washingtonians to make the trek into the region. Today, upwards of 15,000 vacationers visit Bethany during the busy summer months. The main center consists of two blocks of quaint shops and restaurants along with a popular half-mile stretch of boardwalk. The heart of it all and located on the boardwalk is the popular bandstand where small concerts take place on sunny summer weekend days and warm nights. There is also an iconic totem pole that welcomes visitors to Bethany proper and is located at the entrance to the downtown area.

For many years, Bethany was a ‘dry’ town and only allowed its first liquor license in 1982. The largest and most well-known resort community is Sea Colony, consisting of nine high-rise condo buildings on the beach along with 1,200 townhomes and condos located on the west side of Rt. 1. Another large community is Bethany West, which is located just west of town on Rt. 26.
