Discover all that South Coastal Delaware has to offer, from its beautiful natural surroundings to its intimate restaurants and unique shops, with our free Explore Coastal Delaware app — putting the Delaware beaches in the palm of your hand.
Explore Coastal Delaware is brought to you by the Coastal Point, the local weekly newspaper that serves as the defining voice for all that happens along the southern Delaware beaches and their historic inland neighbors: Bethany Beach, South Bethany, Fenwick Island, Ocean View, Millville, Selbyville, Frankford, Millsboro and Dagsboro. We’re here to help you get right to the fun!
From Fenwick Island to the Indian River Inlet, Bethany Beach to the Maryland line, Explore Coastal Delaware will keep you in the know. Find out about the best eateries (from cozy cafés to fine-dining delights), trendiest stores and hottest entertainment offerings, from boardwalk concerts and movies on the beach to where to catch talented local performers and national touring acts. And look for a deal on that round of golf or romantic night in a B&B.
Along the way, Explore Coastal Delaware will let you know where to: pick up a fishing license (and some great spots to go fishing), catch some crabs (or some waves), find a place for the kids to play, buy the freshest produce directly from a family farm, run a race, rent a watercraft, get a good book, and fly or buy a kite — or even pick out your future home by the sea.
No matter where you’re from or where you’re going on your beach vacation, Explore Coastal Delaware makes it all just a tap away. Even if you’re already from here, Explore Coastal Delaware will let you unearth the buried treasures of the First State’s beach communities and help you enjoy your time away from the world in our own little slice of paradise by the shore.
