Fenwick Island

Fenwick Island

Fenwick enjoys a reputation as one of QUIET RESORTS, offering wide, sandy ocean beaches. It is a popular summertime destination for sunbathing and swimming in the ocean, as dolphins often frolic just offshore. To the immediate west of Fenwick Island lies the Little Assawoman Bay. Most of Fenwick Island's bayside properties are on canals which provide boating access to the small bay. From this bay, boaters have easy boat access to the Big Assawoman Bay and the inlet to the Atlantic Ocean at the southerly tip of Ocean City, Maryland. The Little Assawoman Bay is a popular place to catch blue claw crabs or just sail along with the gentle breezes. Several wildlife preservation areas surround the Little Assawoman Bay. The historic Fenwick Lighthouse is situated on the Maryland / Delaware State Line, just south of Fenwick Island.
