Drive On Beach Access Update

Rehoboth beach Tuesday at 10:00 AM

The beaches are a little flattened out in some of the parks.  Delaware Seashore State Park and Fenwick Island are still closed to driving on.  Parks are waiting for high tide to pass to see.  Yesterday water was still washing over the entire beach at high tide.  I will check back with them later this afternoon.  There is still heavy wind action and waves, so it is possible they will not open until tomorrow.  Two hours form high tide and Rehoboth looks like it will wash over again.  Riptides will be a danger so be careful in water, you can get swept off your feet in knee deep water.

Herring Point Beach and Gordons pond area are open to drive on.  Beach Plum Island State Park is also open to drive onto the beach.  Be careful at high tide, water was still washing up last night at high tide but not as bad as the other beaches.  The swales will fill in do not drive through them even when they are wet.  Check them by walking across before you attempt to drive.  Second Summer has officially started.

Fish On!!
