The Bay Today
"Waters on a starry night / Are beautiful and fair."
Little Assawoman Bay, one of Delaware's three inland bays, lies within Fenwick Island State Park. The park's eastern edge is the ocean, while the bay forms its western border. Wetlands weave in and out, creating a meandering emerald necklace along the shore. People, birds, and aquatic creatures all live here and enjoy the bounties of the bay. Thousands of visitors come to participate in its quiet pleasures—kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, birding, fishing leisurely.
In the Quiet Resorts, the bays are the quietest places of all.
