Beaches

Vacationing at one of the gorgeous beaches in Virginia creates lasting memories full of sun, sand, and endless fun.

Looking for the perfect spot for a family beach vacation? Head to Cape Charles on Virginia’s Eastern Shore or Sandbridge Beach, a quiet coastal community with pristine beaches that is only a short drive from all the entertainment of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chesapeake. Virginia Beach has everything for friends or couples seeking out an exciting vacation, including local restaurants that serve the freshest seafood straight from the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, luxurious hotels and resorts for pampered getaways, and waterfront activities to fill every minute of your beach vacation.

Want to fit in an outdoor adventure while staying along Virginia’s coast? Visit First Landing State Park outside of Virginia Beach, Kiptopeke State Park near Cape Charles on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Westmoreland State Park near Colonial Beach on the Northern Neck, or False Cape State Park just south of Sandbridge Beach.

Explore the beaches of Virginia this year and discover your LOVE for the picturesque coastline of the Commonwealth.
