Dewey Beach is one of the beautiful Atlantic beaches that line Delaware's eastern coast. It is home to a vibrant set of local property owners and renters, a second home for upstate Delawareans and out-of-state owners, a popular vacation spot for families, and most notably, one of the favorite beach scenes for the Washington, D.C., weekend beach crowd.
Dewey Beach has undergone a recent beach replenishment project that has greatly increased the amount of sandy beach available for sunbathers and beachcombers. Replenishing the sand dunes creates a buffer against the damaging waves of hurricane season, protecting the beautiful ocean front homes, condominiums, and hotels that line Dewey Beach. With replenishment comes another task---replanting dune grasses whose roots hold the dunes in place during northeasterners, tropical storms, and hurricanes.
