Virginia Beach

The pinnacle of Virginia’s seaside attractions, Virginia Beach Oceanfront is comprised of a sweep of almost three miles of golden sand where Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean.

The record holder for the longest pleasure beach in the world, it is home to a number of annual events including the East Coast Surfing Championships. As you might imagine, the surfing conditions are some of the best on this side of the United States.

Particularly busy from June until schools restart in September, Virginia Beach Oceanfront is edged for its entire length by ocean-facing residential blocks. A long boardwalk provides a pleasant place for an evening stroll, while its pier is often dotted with anglers.

The beach is a broad area of open sand with plenty of space for games and a slight sloping down into the waves. A host of restaurants and other facilities are located in the streets leading to and from it.
