Tangier Island

Tangier is a remote island accessible by air or sea, 12 miles out in the Chesapeake Bay. Visit the “soft crab capital” of the nation and feel welcome by the locals who take much pride in their lifestyle. See the narrow streets, traveled mostly by bicycles and golf carts, the unspoiled beach, quaint gift shops and ice cream shops. Enjoy fine dining with their fresh caught seafood and be sure to visit the Tangier Island Museum full of history on their way of life on the island.
