Best Outdoor Activities at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is a lovely beach town with an influx of summer visitors and a local population of 1,500. Anyone who’s visited the Atlantic coastal town can tell you of its fine sandy beaches, lively boardwalk, and large but elegant beachfront homes.

Because there are so many things to do on and off the beach, it’s a pretty ideal vacation destination for families, friends, couples, and any individual who’d like to enjoy the great outdoors! Here are some of the best things to do in Rehoboth Beach.

1-Bike through Cape Henlopen

Cape Henlopen has a rich history, tracing back to William Penn, who made the grassy area ‘public land’ back in 1682. It is a relatively small national park that lies between the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic ocean and is complete with grassy sand dunes and varied wildlife.

One of the best ways to enjoy the park is to bike along the perimeter of Gordon’s Pond. There’s a fantastic family-friendly trail that covers just under three miles of terrain. If you don’t have a bike of your own, we’d recommend renting from Atlantic Cycles on the Boardwalk.

2-Jet Ski around the Atlantic

Jet skis have the thrill and adventure of motorcycling, without the risk of skidding across concrete. If you choose to rent a jet ski, you can race friends, test the speed limits, or use the waves as your own personal ramps.

Just 2.4 miles down the coast, is the equally sandy and fun Dewey Beach. The best place to rent jet skis there is Dewey Beach Water Sports. Their skis are state of the art and allow for a passenger to join the driver. Renting jet skis could be a great option for any thrill seekers in the family.

3-Explore the Boardwalk

Like many beach towns, the Rehoboth boardwalk is one of the main social hubs. Here you’ll find the best soft serve ice cream from Kohr Brothers, cool surf shops, Zelky’s Beach Arcade, The Funnel Cake Factory, all the fun amusement rides at FunLand (like the Superflip 360), and of course, deliciously salty boardwalk fries from Thrasher’s.

The boardwalk pushes right up against the beach, so your family can go back and forth between civilization and sandy shores easily. You can have fun in the sun all summer long in Rehoboth...and in the winter, feel free to bundle up and visit Mug & Spoon for the best warm drinks in Rehoboth!
