Beach, Boardwalk & Comfort Station


Known for our beautiful beach, the Town of Bethany Beach is dedicated to providing a clean, safe, family atmosphere along its entire coastline. Our approximately one-mile long and 150-foot wide beach is a wonderful place for families to enjoy a day at the shore.

Our beaches are mechanically cleaned at least three times each week during our summer season. Along with mechanical cleaning the Town staff patrols the beach throughout the day in order to maintain a clean environment.


The Town boardwalk is .38 miles long and 12 feet wide. Whether you're looking for a leisurely walk or a daily jog, the boardwalk has become a favorite for many who wish to stretch their legs.

All public beach entrances are provided with trash receptacles on the beach and boardwalk. During the summer season the boardwalk also has operational foot washing stations at every street for all of those who wish to clean that pesky sand from their feet.

Comfort Station

The comfort station is located at the beach front on Garfield Parkway. It provides restroom facilities for beachgoers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The facility is climate controlled and offers a baby changing station for families with little ones.
