Six Miles of Ocean and Bay Shoreline:Water, water everywhere describes Delaware Seashore State Park.  Bounded on the east by the mighty Atlantic Ocean, and on the west by Rehoboth Bay and Indian River Bay, the 2,825-acre park is a beach-goer’s delight.The main attraction for many visitors is swimming and sunbathing along the park’s spectacular beaches.  Two ocean swimming areas feature modern bathhouses with showers and changing rooms.  Lifeguards patrol the beaches from 9 am to 5 pm daily between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day.  Snack foods are available at the bathhouses, umbrellas, and chairs can be rented on the beach. Surfing, Windsurfing, and Sailboarding:Surfers enjoy riding the mighty ocean waves at Delaware Seashore, too.  The beach just north of the Inlet is one of the few designated areas in the state for this exciting sport.  Other beaches throughout the park are set aside for surf fishing.  Marked dune crossings allow fishing access for four-wheel drive vehicles onto the beach.  Permits and related information are available at the park office.
