Elisha Babcock, Jr. and H. L. Story, The Del’s two visionary founders sensed the immense potential of this unique stretch of real estate blessed with beautiful beaches and a year-round temperate climate.
Victorians believed the seaside air and salt water to be both preservative and renewing and they preferred to include health-promoting outdoor activities in their vacation plans. The Del offered vigorous activities such as fishing and horseback riding, along with more calming pursuits including collecting shells and playing croquet.
Today, the resort continues to offer fun in the sun options for those seeking a respite from a fast-paced world. From boating and surfing lessons to island biking or simply strolling the endless shore, the rejuvenating powers of this legendary resort are just as enticing as they were 100 years ago.
As a member of the Club at The Del, your family and guests have their very own private beach area just steps away from the relaxing ambiance of the Windsor Cottage, an artfully appointed clubhouse reserved exclusively for members and VIP guests.
