Naval Jetty

Edit Spot

The spot is one of the few surfing beaches in the summer times. It also breaks very long. Watch out for the tree stumps. Very mellow break. enjoy.

Its a very very long right, the only pointbreak delaware offers up. Longboarders love it. Kinda a slow wave, and its amazing how long you will go. Good Beginners waves for easy take-offs. Most guys sit right in front of the rock jetty, and ride forever. It can be a bit competitive with the locals, so just know the rules.

Additional Info:
The spot can be a little tricky to access. The locals are gonna hate me for this one but here are some better directions. Head North on rt 1. towards Lewes, DE. You will see a Cape Henlopen Park exit...take it. You will drive down this road which will go by the town of Lewis, and the Cape May/Lewis Ferry.. Keep driving and you will see the Cape Henlopen Park Signs. Pay the fee for the park and take the first left. At the stop sign take a right. Follow this road for a while until you get to a old lighthouse, and a spot called herrings point. You'll see the cars.. its a walk down some sand dunes to the beach.


Its in the Cape Henlopen State Park. A place called Herring point, past a old WWII lighthouse. Then its a short winding walk down the dunes.
