Slaughter Beach is a family oriented, Nature Beach and the northenmost Delaware Bay Beach in Sussex County. When temperatures warm in the spring, baby Diamondback Terrapin turtles begin emerging from their nests on the beach and start making their way to the marsh. Keep an eye out for them as they cross the road. If you see a hatchling in the road, please place it in the grass on the marsh side. Also keep an eye out for the large female terrapins that leave the marsh looking for sandy nesting areas on the beach side.
Slaughter Beach is also home to the Milford Neck Wildlife Area. Tourists are attracted to this area for bird watching as many birds stop over to eat the eggs of horseshoe crabs as they lay their eggs on the beaches. Along with Broadkill and Pickering beaches, this area is officially designated as a horseshoe crab sanctuary. Because Slaughter Beach is such an important area for the continued survival of horseshoe crabs and the migrating birds that depend on their eggs, the town has adopted the horseshoe crab as its official town symbol. Some of the Horseshoe Crabs are “tagged” for research purposes.
