Broadkill Beach

Broadkill is a small unincorporated town located on the Delaware Bay and Broadkill River north of Lewes on Route one. Broadkill is a waterfowl lover’s dream. Surrounded by Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. Prime Hook was founded in 1963 to be a sanctuary for migratory birds. It is only the migratory path for many species of birds such as mallards, black duck, wood duck and Canada geese. Herons, terns, songbirds, and shorebirds also call Prime Hook home as do numerous amounts of reptiles, amphibians and mammals. Prime Hook also offers fifteen miles of streams and ditches for canoeing as well as boating in the tidal waters. There are several boat launches available. Oh, and of course hiking trails!
