So Many Ways to Enjoy the Coast

The tidal Indian River begins at Millsboro Pond and flows into the Atlantic Ocean at the Indian River Inlet, making Millsboro an ideal retreat for boaters and anglers. The town is also conveniently located in the back bay area, approximately halfway between the Rehoboth/Dewey Beach area and the Quiet Resorts of Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island. Millsboro is also a short skip, hop, and jump from the historic towns of Lewes and Milton.
