Nestled between the little Assawoman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Fenwick Island offers one of the best beaches in southern Delaware. Fenwick Island has been known as "Fisherman's Paradise" for more than 75 years and fishermen can be seen daily on the beach at sunrise casting for bluefish, rockfish and flounder. The town of Fenwick Island is about a mile long and a half a mile wide, and is home to several hundred full-time residents who watch the population swell to a few thousand every summer. Many of the town's beautiful single-family homes are available for summer rental. Fishing, crabbing, windsurfing and jet skiing may be enjoyed on the bay; or maybe you prefer swimming in the ocean or relaxing by sunbathing on the beautiful beaches with state parks and wildlife preserves, amusement parks and museums, Fenwick Island has something for everyone.
