Living Life to the Fullest in Millville by the Sea


Imagine if vacation never had to end. Picture lakeside sunsets, resort-style amenities, and fresh ocean air being part of your daily routine. Do you think it would make you more relaxed, more content, and all-around happier?



Enter Millville by the Sea.


Just four miles from Bethany Beach, Millville by the Sea offers the sense of community you’ve longed for and the “all I want is everything” amenities you’ve earned. Grab a kayak for a morning paddle on Lake Summerwind or spend an afternoon lounging by one of our pools. Whether you’re looking for excitement and adventure or peace and relaxation, you’ll find it in the coastal retreat of Millville by the Sea.


Activities and Clubs for Every Lifestyle

While the endless summer feeling may initially draw you in, it’s our year-round activities and events that make you never want to leave. At the center of the community is our Lifestyle and Activity Center: a hub for neighborhood get-togethers, fitness classes, and club meetings. Here, neighbors become lifelong friends and social interaction comes naturally.


Clubhouse and Pub

“Wine” down with our weekly Happy Hour or stop by midday to relax with a cold brew at our very own Clubhouse and Pub! With multiple flat-screen TVs in both the Pub AND the Clubhouse, each spot offers the perfect setting to catch the big game with friends. Not a sports fan? Grab a board game and challenge a neighbor to see who can build the most hotels on Park Place.


Crab Shack

Take part in the ultimate East Coast tradition. Bring your favorite shellfish to our community Crab Shack and show off your chef-worthy skills in the outdoor kitchen. Plus, did we mention the kitchen overlooks Lake Summerwind? Sunsets here are unparalleled!


Fitness Center

With our onsite Fitness Center, staying active is fun and easy! Limber up with a yoga class inside our private studio or get grooving with a Zumba class. If solo workouts are more your speed, we have plenty of treadmills, ellipticals, and stationary bikes to choose from.


Events and Clubs

If there is one thing everyone in the community can agree on, it’s that events in Millville by the Sea are never dull. Each month, our dedicated Lifestyle Director curates a calendar of memorable activities making it easy for us to stay social all year long! Our events calendar is always changing, so be sure to check it frequently for the latest updates.


Take it Outside

Lake Summerwind

If you thought our beautiful Lake Summerwind was just a great photo op, think again! Drop a line off our dedicated fishing dock or take a kayak out for a spin on our calm waters. Located right next to the Lifestyle and Activity Center, it is the perfect spot to meet up in the center of the community.


Sport Courts

Bring out your competitive side for a day spent on our sport courts! Choose from community favorites like Bocce Ball and Pickleball and put your skills to the test. No need to worry if you are a little rusty on the rules of the game. Pickleball clinics are available to help you brush up on the basics.



Looking to switch it up? Trade a day at the beach for a relaxing afternoon by one of our pools. Our Resort-style pool is surrounded by lounge chairs, umbrellas, and an interactive splash pad area that out-of-town family will love.


For a more intimate setting, visit the Sand Dollar Pool in Sand Dollar Village. Located next to the Exercise Cabana, this pool is great for swimming morning laps or cooling down after a workout.


Beach Shuttle

If a day at the beach is what you’re craving (after all, you are only a short 4 miles away), our Beach Shuttle is just what you need! Throughout the summer months, leave the unnecessary stress of beach parking behind and opt for a ride straight to the shore. For more information on the Shuttle run dates and stops, visit our Beach Shuttle page.
