Beach
“You will love this secluded beach area for walking, relaxing, sun and surf. Drive straight out Route 16 (Broadkill Road) to the beach. There is a small beach store and free parking there. There is also an active "Little Free Library" at the parking area. If there is a land breeze, bugs can be a problem. Carry insect repellant! Bay breeze means no bug problem.”

Park
“The beautiful Mispillion Riverwalk is the heart of Downtown Milford. Walk the whole 1 mile trail and you'll see wildlife and even get to venture out to Goat Island. It has revitalized Milford’s downtown, and is the largest municipal park in Delaware.”

“The nearby Assawoman Canal is also part of Holts Landing State Park. The 97-acre canal connects the Indian River Bay with Little Assawoman Bay to the south. Measuring over three miles in length, the canal was originally dug by hand by immigrants during the 1890's. Although its waters are very shallow now, the canal operated as part of the nation's inland waterway system at various times throughout its history.”

“ Lewes Public beach is 2 miles away (15 bike ride, not even 10 min by car). There is no charge for Lewes Public beach but you have to feed the parking meters. If you have kids, the public beach is recommended since it is a BAY beach.”
