Fenwick Island



The southernmost of the Delaware beach communities, Fenwick Island has a wide sandy beach with gentle dunes and no concessions or fast-food outlets marring the shoreline. The Fenwick Island Lighthouse was built in 1859 and is still operational. A stone monument marks the Transpeninsular Line, which indicates the Delaware-Maryland border—the earliest foundation for the Mason-Dixon Line. Sporting activities in the area include fishing, sailing and kayaking. 95 mi/155 km south of Wilmington.
