Bethany Beach Real Estate

Bethany Beach is typically broken down into two subdivisions: White Creek and Wilgus. Houses in Bethany Beach are usually more expensive than those in surrounding areas due to prime beachfront property. As you move away from the coveted boardwalk area, you'll see prices drop, although you're still paying a premium to live in this world-class city. Regardless of where you end up, living in Bethany Beach means you'll finally experience the coveted beach lifestyle you've always dreamed of.

When you're looking at homes for sale in Bethany Beach, don't forget about vacation properties. Though these are primarily tailored to people looking for a getaway spot rather than year-round residents, these are still solid beachfront homes that provide a lot to love, and the views from these pieces of prime Bethany Beach real estate are pretty great, too.

Bethany Beach Attractions and Nightlife

The center of life in Bethany Beach is the town's boardwalk. It's not very long, but it borders the area's sandy beach that's perfect for sunning yourself or boating in summer. You'll find plenty of restaurants, bars, and other nightlife near this area. Though these venues can get crowded during the tourist season, natives are always welcome and things can get downright cozy during the off-season.

The boardwalk is definitely the best-known part of Bethany Beach, but the rest of the town is well-known as a warm, welcoming, wholesome Mid-Atlantic community. Bethany places a strong emphasis on family fun and the nearby Delaware Seashore State Park does a great job of giving the community its own individualized feel. It's no wonder people call Bethany Beach and some of its surrounding resort towns "the quiet resorts."
