Bethany Beach

National Geographic Traveler, widely considered one of the most noteworthy travel magazines on stands, delivered exciting news to the Bethany Beach and coastal Delaware communities in their latest June/July 2014 issue.  The magazine named Bethany Beach as one of seven beaches in the entire country where “the essential beach experience endures.”

As expected, the qualifications to land on this coveted list weren’t easy to achieve.  The author of the article, Bruce Schoenfeld, noted that “spacious, picturesque, relatively uncrowded and clean” were favorable qualities in a beach town. But most importantly, however, was that the local culture of these towns must not only cater to tourism but also “transcend” it.

Better yet, between Massachusetts and North Carolina, Bethany was the only beach to be recognized by the magazine.  Kristie Maravalli, Executive Director of the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, notes that “this accolade from National Geographic is a wonderful distinction for our community.”  She continues, “But it’s no surprise to anyone in the Quiet Resorts that Bethany Beach is recognized as a quintessential American beach town.  Bethany’s beautiful five-star beaches and our active, friendly community of residents and businesses create a small-town, beach-town feel that makes Bethany unique.”

Bayside is proud to say that nearby Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island continue to be popular spots amongst our residents.  And how could these gems not be favorites for every beachgoer?  It’s towns like these that make living in coastal Delaware such a treat!

And when living in coastal Delaware, there’s no better community than our Bayside. Our new homes by NVHomes, Schell Brothers, Marnie Custom Beach Homes and Echelon Custom Homes perfectly complement the Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island feel that is so widely appreciated.  Timeless home designs meet classic coastal-resort styles to create a truly unique and diverse beach community!

Best of all, not only do Bayside residents get the full benefits of National Geographic-worthy beaches, but they can enjoy an array of resort amenities as well!  The Bayside Resort Golf Club boasts the first-ever Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Delaware with “three distinctly different golf experiences all in one golf course.”  The Sun Ridge Tennis & Recreation Center, complete with a pool with splash zone, beach volleyball, tennis courts and fitness club, serves as a hub of activity for Bayside residents. And The Point, with spectacular views of the Ocean City skyline, is also available for crabbing, fishing, and kayaking.

Here at Bayside, we’ve always considered our local beaches to be among the best in the country, but it’s even better hearing it from a source like National Geographic! With these beautiful beaches less than four miles away, an entire community to be explored, and stunning new homes, living at Bayside is a dream!
