Our brand new jetty The Murderkill River North Jetty Rehabilitation Project began the week of September 14 at Bowers Beach and has been completed.

History of Bowers Beach

Date Posted: Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

As the St. Jones River winds its way to the Delaware Bay, at its mouth one finds one of the quaintest communities in the state – Bowers Beach. Once one of the premier fishing towns on the Delaware Bay with an average of three hundred boats at the docks or moorings, this town has endeared itself to many residents of the state. People come to fish, to paint, to drink and eat, and to stroll the beaches looking for treasures.
