Dewey Beach, DE Overview

Incorporated in 1981, Dewey Beach claims only 230 permanent residents along its 21-block expanse.  With a population nearing the 1,300 mark, Rehoboth blends magnificent old Victorians in the heart of town with new developments around its periphery.  With Rehoboth Bay to the west and the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Dewey Beach seems more like a barrier reef than a community.  Water sport enthusiasts can enjoy a wide variety of activities, from skimboarding and sail boarding to catmaran sailing.  Families with small children can enjoy the calmer bay waters.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
