But, in case you are looking for specific examples of how to remain active when you visit the Peninsula on the Indian River Bay, we have compiled the top-ten list of active things to do.
1. Play a round (or two) of golf.
This one is a gimme! Located on a gorgeous 72-par, 7,200 square-foot, Jack Nicklaus golf course, you can’t not spend a day or two golfing the 18-hole course that winds its way through the entire community. And, if you have never golfed or are a novice, visit the driving range and pro golf shop for lessons from Titleist certified golf coaches.
2. Take a walk.
The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay is home to miles and miles of walking trails that wind through a nature reserve and hugs the Delaware Shore. Whether you walk to stay active, enjoy the silence, take in the fresh air, witness the sites, gather some solitude and reflect on life, or a combination of reasons, you will find just what you are looking for, and even a few things you didn’t know you could find.
3. Swim, inside or out.
The Delaware Shore is home to some of the most amazing beaches that the east coast has to offer. Some of these beaches include Bethany Beach, Rehoboth Beach, and Lewes Beach. These beaches on the Atlantic Ocean offer incredible views around the clock. The beach boardwalks are full of quaint shops and eateries that will keep you walking and enjoying the fresh air for hours.
If going out in the sunshine on the sandy shores, being slathered in sunscreen and smelling the fresh salty air isn’t your thing, no worries.

Tennis is perhaps as popular as golf on the peninsula.
