Colonial Beach, located at the northern tip of Virginia's Northern Neck, is one of the few remaining small seaport towns on the Potomac River. The town enjoys a unique location nestled between the Potomac River on the east and the waters of Monroe Bay on the West. Its sandy beaches and marinas on Monroe Bay have attracted water sporting enthusiasts for over a century. Fishing, sailing, boating, swimming and crabbing are just a few of the water activities enjoyed here. A great place to visit.
The visitor's center in Colonial Beach has all the information you need concerning our small river town. Many brochures, phamphlets, CB shirts & sweatshirts, and knowledgable people that can answer all your questions and give you a history lesson too!
