Sail back in time from Onancock to this tiny Chesapeake Bay Island to experience life lived in the tranquil rhythm of the tides. Watermen still carry on the centuries-old tradition of harvesting the waters and visitors can enjoy the fresh bounty at several of the island’s nationally recognized home-style restaurants. Rent bikes or Tangier taxis – golf carts to cruise the nearly carless isle or take a tour with a native telling island tales in their unique sing-song Elizabethan twang. Shops provide perusing while the pristine shores are excellent for relaxing and scouting Native American arrowheads. Take a nature cruise with a Tangier captain to fish crab pots and discover the island’s legendary soft-shell crab farms. Come twilight, rock on the porch of a quaint B & B and listen to the creatures of the marsh softly serenade the island.
