""The Quiet Resort"" Fenwick Island by Lilasel

Fenwick Island Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 13 photos

Fenwick Island, DE

It's not really an island. "The Quiet Resort" is nestled between Ocean City (Maryland) and Bethany Beach (Delaware). Just north of Ocean City, where 146th Street ends, Fenwick (and Delaware) begins. Fenwick Island was incorporated in 1953 and is locally referred to as "The Quiet Resort."
Though Fenwick shares many of the same attractions as other Atlantic coast beaches, it has a distinctly different ambience. Fenwick Island is famous by its Lighthouse.

    You must have worked hard to find Fenwick Island (in my home state...) Far, far away from Riga...
