This is a nice boardwalk by the beach. Great in all weather, even pleasant in the winter. Nice place to walk around and get a break from the water

We definitely prefer Bethany to the other nearby beaches, which are noisier and more commercialized. Great place for kids.

A great place to take a stroll and watch the waves roll in, but no rides for kids. Get a Dickeys Custard and walk the boards!

It is not a very long boardwalk but very clean with a few shops and little food stands on it.You could also walk off and there are many stores and restaurants to shop and eat.

The boardwalk is small, but always clean, good shape, and pleasant. Not much on the walk but that is a positive.

Bethany is a nice town to stroll about. Plenty of shops to browse and purchase interesting items. The boardwalk is not long enough to get any exercise. Make sure you get to town before 9pm because everything closes early.

We go to Bethany Beach every August and just love the boardwalk. Good variety of food plus little shops. We have young children so it's not overwhelming like Ocean City or Rehobath.

One way from beginning to end is .38 miles, so knock out a few laps to get your exercise and people watching in. This is not a commercial boardwalk, it is a relaxing family walk that is enjoyable day or night. TIP: Bring your dog...More

This board walk is about 1/2 to 1 mile long. There are some shops and restaurants in the center. It is accessible from several streets along its length. An easy way to walk along the beach. Parking on the neighboring streets is by meter.

No. This area is not dog friendly in the summer months. The beach is not dog friendly. I'd say that the entire town of Bethany beach is not dog friendly. Won't visit here again.

There is a coffee shop, however, most of the shops close during the late Fall and Winter.
