  • We love Sandbridge Beach. It is very close to our kids' home. At this time of year there is free parking. A convenience store is close at hand. The beach is clean.  more »
  • Really is the best place in the world!! Beaches are safe and easy to access. Parking at Little Island makes getting to the beach easier. There are bathrooms and showers to use, too.  more »

  • Best beach on the east coast. This hideaway Virginia's outer coast is host to the most beautiful, expansive beaches. Clean, easy to access. Dolphin pods travel throughout the day. Great for dolphin and pelican watching. Clean (no trash). Sandy beach with little to no shells, rocks, etc. The best experience ever with children at the beach. No drop offs and lifeguards on duty in the public areas.
  • Wonderful beach south of Virginia Beach. Out of the way community. Quaint restaurants and stores. Quiet.
