If you’re looking for a more relaxed day at the beach, head on over to the beautiful shores of the Chesapeake Bay. All the same great beach activities are available, but here you’ll find calmer, more gentler waves. Plus, you can enjoy other great outdoor adventure activities at nearby First Landing State Park. From fishing to hiking, biking and kayaking, this state park offers tons of rooms to explore, get up close and personal with wildlife as well as view unique flora and fauna. There are also plenty of great shops, restaurants and other attractions located on the nearby Shore Drive.
Located at the southern end of Virginia's coastline, Sandbridge is a more secluded beach offering 5 miles of beautiful dune lined beaches. Like the Chesapeake Bay region, Sandbridge also offers traditional beach activities in a more subdued setting as well as great explorations as nearby Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge or False Cape State Park – both of which offer guided tours into the beautiful marsh-land setting.
Need we say more about the Virginia Beach resort area – wide sandy beaches, an amazing 3-mile long concrete boardwalk perfect for biking, walking or roller-bladding, specialty shows, mouth-watering restaurants, and of course, all the free live entertainment you can handle along Beach StreetUSA. This is the heart of the Virginia Beach oceanfront and the spot to go for non-stop family fun.
