#1 of 13 in Beaches in Virginia
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.

  • I would call this a "deep" beach, meaning a lot of space from the boardwalk to the water. The sand is a bit gritty, which is typical of east coast beaches from Georgia to the north.  more »
  • Very clean beach was very refreshing to walk the beach in February. They offer horseback riding in the Fall, Winter and Spring.  more »
  • Although we have stayed at in mid April ... but it was a sunny day, 20 degrees, so we leapt into the icy Atlantic. Otherwise, it was a clean, sandy beach, gradual entry into the water. The pageantry.
