The Quiet Resorts encompass both oceanfront and inland towns. The most familiar beaches are Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island, as there is public beach access and lifeguards on duty. Other oceanfront areas are North Bethany, Sea Colony, Middlesex, and South Bethany, which are privately operated and do not allow for public beach access.
The Quiet Resorts also span inland to towns and communities including Ocean View, Millville, Clarksville, Dagsboro, Roxana, Frankford, and Selbyville. Despite the inland location, many of these towns have water access to bays and creeks, or are situated just a short drive to a marina, dock or sandy beach. With convenient water access throughout the area, the Quiet Resorts lends itself to a morning swim, spontaneous scenic kayaking trip, fantastic surf fishing, or an afternoon boating adventure.
