I have lived in Broadkill for over 20 years. The water is safe and clean in all the northern beaches never a beach closing and tested regularly by the state...the northern beaches are a great place to enjoy the beach.
Yes the water is swimmable in all the beaches. I have lived in Broadkill for tweny + years. The further north you get the less sandy the bottom....the water is still clean and safe to swim in. The bottom becomes more like a river bottom then a sandy bottom north of Slaughter starting in the northern part of slaughter beach
The answer is yes. Dover is only 45 miles north of Rehoboth Beach, a very busy beach, and Broadkill Beach is about 17 miles north of Rehoboth. Please give me a call at 302-346-2729 or email me at Ron@WeSellDelawareHomes.com.
