Primehook-Beach is one of the five beaches located on the Delaware Bay in Sussex County. The others are Lewes Beach, Broadkill Beach, Fowlers Beach and Slaughter Beach. Primehook Beach is not a well known beach, but thats exactly why most who discover it like it so much. Its a beautiful, tranquil, sandy beach that offers swimming, surf fishing and camping. Its near the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, which was established in 1963 to preserve the coastal wetlands as a wintering and breeding habitat for migratory waterfowl. The refuge contains over 8,000 acres of fresh marsh, tidal marsh and open water in the Delaware Bay Estuary. Prime Hook Refuge provides a nesting habitat for wood ducks, black ducks and many other species and is a wonderful place for birdwatching and wildlife viewing. The refuge is considered one of the best existing wetland habitat areas on the Atlantic Coast. The Bay hosts the worlds largest population of spawning horseshoe crabs and their eggs provide an annual fest for thousands of migrating shorebirds. Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge is located on the west shore of Delaware Bay, about 22 miles southeast of Dover. Other activities at Primehook Beach include long, peaceful walks on the beach, shell collecting, hiking, biking, snorkeling, sailing and sightseeing. Primehook Beach is also near the resort beach towns of Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Fenwick Island, Lewes and Bethany Beach.

Primehook Beach Weather & Climate

Central Delaware has a four-season climate that is classified as humid subtropical. Since almost all of the state is part of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the effects of the ocean moderate the weather. The Atlantic Coastal Plain is flat and not very high, reaching no more than 80 feet above sea level. Summers are warm and sometimes humid, with July being the hottest month of the year. Winters are cold, but not frigid. In fact, the whole state of Delaware has relatively mild winters because the mountains of Pennsylvania protect it from cold northwest winds. Monthly average temperatures range from a high of 85.6 degrees in summer to a low of 23.2 degrees in winter. Precipitation is distributed fairly evenly throughout the state, although the north and southeast receive more precipitation than the central portion of the state. Thunderstorms are common in the summer months. Tornado activity in Central Delaware is less than the national average. Hurricanes rarely make direct his on the state, and plenty of warning is given for these types of storms.
