Fenwick Island is a coastal town in Sussex County, Delaware, USA. On the 5th (Sun), look for all kinds of wild species at Bethany Beach Nature Center, stroll through Bethany Beach, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Bethany Beach Boardwalk, and finally look for gifts at Bethany Beach Books. Keep things going the next day: immerse yourself in nature at Fenwick Island State Park, see the interesting displays at DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum, then tee off at The Links at Lighthouse Sound, and finally don't miss a visit to Candy Kitchen.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Fenwick Island trip planning app.

Portland to Fenwick Island is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Portland to Fenwick Island. Traveling from Portland in July, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Fenwick Island, with lows around 70°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) so you can travel to Rehoboth Beach.
