One of the great things about Virginia Beach is that not matter which way the wind in blowing you can find a calm beach. Chicks is a great swim beach when the winds are from the South or East, but don't try it when is blowing from the North. Get their early if you want to park.

Coming from the Jersey Shore, I can't get used to the brown sand at the Oceanfront. Finding Chicks Beach was a plus. Not only do they have the silky light sand that I am used too but it has the beachy homes and laid back vibe that I love. The water is calmer too.

I was 8 mos. pregnant when I visited this beach. Compared to the beach by the boardwalk there were less people & the waves were much calmer (presumably because it is a bay) which was easier for me to wade in & enjoy.

Chick's beach is a little more private and local bands play at the restaurants on the weekend. Enjoy

I don't quite understand the draw when the north end of vb is so much larger/nicer. Depending on the water level beach could be smaller crowding everyone together. Watching the ships anchored makes me wonder what they are exhausting so close to where I'm swimming.. I'm always just "meh" about this location. Unless I owned or rented here and the... More

We tried going to this beach because we heard it was so lovely and beautiful, and that there were all of these calm, gentle waves. Basically, we wanted to experience the quiet beach. I guess there is a reason why it's so quiet. It's almost impossible to find a parking spot there, unless you live in one of the houses... More

It's a nice little beach, that is nestled in a small beach community area. It's not as busy as some of the other beaches in the area. The parking is not great. You have to park on the street, and really be aware of the no parking signs. My friend got a ticket for parking next to one that she... More

Nice for walking. Peaceful waters. Not congested. Cool eateries in area. Hard to find parking so best in the early evening. Kept clean. See big boats in distance. Dogs allowed. Great for children too. Gorgeous sunsets!

Great place to take the kids! Small waves, shallow water, and a beach that wasn't crowded made it perfect to take kids and be able to relax without the contant worry of losing them in the ocean! Going back for sure.
