Virginia Beach stretches 4.8 km (3 mi) along the waterfront of a town of the same name. Sunbathe on the soft sand, or shop for souvenirs on the main street along the beach. The white sand beach is bound by the ocean and a boardwalk featuring museums, monuments, and sculptures. Follow the boardwalk for the Virginia Legends Walk to learn about famous citizens of the state like Thomas Jefferson, Edgar Allen Poe, and Ella Fitzgerald. If you’re into fishing, try your luck along the fishing pier, accessible from the boardwalk. A visit to Virginia Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Virginia Beach holiday maker app to plot your vacation.

  • It was great! We loved walking the boardwalk every night! A lot to see and do. We enjoyed the live bands playing. Many of the bars of the boardwalk had a soloist play, and we enjoyed that also. The public restrooms were dirty in the evenings. People just don't care!
  • Had a great time! KITE FESTIVAL! 💯❤ Side street meter parking. No parking on Atlantic Avenue and biting flies took away one star. Other than that we had a great time ☺️🥰
  • Today was a lovely day to be at the beach. This was my 1st time on this beach and I loved it! This beach is very clean and is close all restaurants and a fair where you can take kids to ride rides. They also have a lot of shops with great prices on shirts and stuff. They have smoke shops that sell delta 8 beer and wine. This is a great place for the family or if you want to take a couples trip or girls trip!!
  • Virginia Beach is a must visit. Gorgeous sand that is well maintained. The water is so refreshing. They have tractors that comb the beach every morning and a crazy cleaning crew that regularly patrols the beach and boardwalk for trash. Plenty of options for snacking, eating, drinking, staying, and entertainment. There's so much to do.
  • Grew up going to this beach and still have love for it, even during the summer days when it gets too busy. It's got a long boardwalk that makes for a nice stroll, with a bike path to the side; a lengthy strip, dispersed between different streets and densely packed with lots of shops (clothing, souvenirs, novelties, whatever else you might come across), a small amusement park, nightclubs, arcades, restaurants/eateries, food stands, and adventurous things to do with groups and family; plenty of convenience stores; numerous hotels to choose from; outdoor show venues and live street performances; restrooms and rinse stations conveniently located within walking distance; and plenty of interesting things to see. It is fairly clean and well maintained throughout. Whether you're looking to have a fun beach day, a decent nightlife activity, or just a chill time with family or friends, there's lots to do here. It's a nice place to be even when all the tourists come out. I like to hit the North End whenever the main strip has too much going on.
