Nestled along the Delaware Bay is the incorporated city of Lewes. This proud city is not just the “First City in the First State” - it is also one of the principal cities in the fastest-growing region of Delaware! However, Lewes is perhaps best known for Lewes Beach. With its clear, blue waters and relative quietness, Lewes Beach is great for kayaking, swimming, and just soaking in the sun. Complementing its natural beauty is the historical downtown area, which has a wide selection of restaurants and shops. Visiting soon? We’ve selected the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Lewes Beach, Delaware, the USA. Be sure to check out our picks, to help you find the right accommodation.

Stay in a secluded condominium right where the section happens in Lewes! This end unit has only one bedroom with a queen bed that’s perfect for couples. However, if you’re a small group of four persons, you will still have ample sleeping space as there is also a pull-out couch available. It also has a full bathroom, an enclosed patio, and a tree-shaded sitting area where you relax in peace as it is very quiet in the area while watching waterfowl. The unit also comes with a full kitchen, a dryer, a washer, and an indoor fireplace. The living space has a cable TV, seating, and books. Since it is at the center of Lewes, almost everything is within walking distance. It is right across the street from two waterfront bars. A short walk from the bridge brings you to the historic part of Lewes and walking further, for about a mile (1.6 kilometers) will bring you to the state park and beaches.
