South-Bethany is a small community located in Sussex County on the South Delaware coast between the Atlantic Ocean and the bay. The population is approximately 500 residents. The land that is South Bethany Beach was originally part of a land patent known as South Petherton, granted in 1695. In 1926, George McClellan, a resident of Long Island, New York purchased four adjoining land tracts that became the Delaware Shore Land Corporation. In 1952, Mr. And Mrs. Richard Hall purchased 130 acres from the Corporation and named the land "South Bethany." It lies just south of Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach. South Bethany, along with its neighbors Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island, are known as "The Quiet Resorts." However, unlike Bethany Beach, South Bethany Beach is mostly residential. Outdoor activities abound in the area. There are sandy beaches and seashore parks for swimming, boating, fishing, surfing, crabbing and beachcombing. Youll also find championship golf courses in the South Bethany region, antique shops, specialty shops and fine dining. Nearby Bethany Beach is home to an annual Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival, usually held in early September and a Farmers Market on summer weekends in June, July and August.

South Bethany Weather & Climate

Southern Delaware's weather is greatly moderated by the Atlantic Ocean. The state is the second smallest in the U.S., only 96 miles long and 9 to 35 miles across. Most of it lies within the Atlantic Coastal Plain and the climate transitions between a humid subtropical climate and a continental climate. However, despite its small size, there are significant variations in temperature and amount of snowfall among the state's three counties. Sussex County, which includes the southeastern beach areas, has a somewhat milder climate and a longer growing season than the northern part of the state. Summers are warm with occasional thunderstorms and July is the hottest month of the year. Southeastern Delaware tends to have the highest temperatures and more precipitation than the center of the state, with an average precipitation of 46 inches. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, although August is usually the wettest month. The whole state has mild winters because the mountains of Pennsylvania protect it from cold northwest winds. January, on average, has the coldest temperatures.
