The Delaware Bay shoreline extends from Delaware City's Pea Patch Island in New Castle County, all the way down to the City of Lewes in Sussex County.
Widely recognized for its global ecological significance, the Delaware Bay spans many coastal marshes, agricultural lands, and forest areas all along its shoreline. Here you will find migratory shorebirds and horseshoe crabs. In fact, these shorebirds, numbering more than a half million, stop along the shoreline to dine on the eggs laid by these spawning horseshoe crabs.
Following along the shoreline, you will come to Bowers Beach, also called Town of Bowers, which is located in Frederica, DE. The town's website caption is "The Way Life Used to Be." This town is full of rich history, much of which you can read about here.
This very quaint fishing town is nestled between the St. Jones River and the Murderkill River.
Fishing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, bird watching, or simply strolling along the beaches; Bowers welcomes YOU!
