Beach Rules, Regulations & Vendors

The Town of Fenwick Island public beach runs from Lewes Street to E. Atlantic Street.  Along this stretch of beach town rules, ordinances and regulations apply.  See beach signs for details.

From E. Atlantic Street to the MD State line, Town of Fenwick Island ordinances do not apply.  See State of Delaware Park signs for details.

The town does coordinate and manage two beach vendors.  Steen’s Beach Service rents umbrellas and chairs within town and in the unincorporated area while Go Melvo, Inc. sells snowballs from two trailers exclusively in the unincorporated area.  Both vendors are open from 10 am to 5 pm.  Proceeds from both vendors help offset Beach Patrol operating expenses.
