We really enjoyed Sandbridge Beach. We are used to going to Ocean City, MD so were surprised when it has more of an "Outer Banks" feel. Not very crowded, the waves weren't overwhelming and you could walk out for a good way into the ocean. There didn't seem to be any lifeguards on the beach on the weekends which was... More

We enjoyed Sandbridge Beach as part of our beach rental property, the glorious Bella Vita. The beach was a mere steps away from the back gate and was, for the most part, not crowded at all. Our group enjoyed much of the beach to ourselves and enjoyed chasing the numerous ghost crabs around. As all beaches go, there was plenty... More

Really nice clean beach. Not many lifeguards though. Some low sand dunes are at the southern end of the beach near the fishing pier.

Exceptionally clean, beautiful and less crowded than VA Beach. Surfing is excellent and boogie boarding as well. Parking can be tricky, so go early. It is about $5.00, half the price of VA beach.

Beautiful, clean sandy beach. Not nearly as crowded as nearby Virginia Beach. Great for children and families wanting to spend time together.

We've been coming to Sandbridge off and on for years now. It's a really nice clean beach that is definitely NOT over commercialized. We're coming back in Sept.- yea!

Our extended family rented a beach house in Sandbridge. Right on the beach. One week. The beach is quiet and sparsely populated. The beach could use some cleaning. Not Garbage, but broken shells and dried dune fauna. Pay someone with a rake once in a while. Here's the other good/bad thing: There's nothing near. To get to any VB attractions... More

We stayed at Sweetwater beach house and absolutely loved it! The beach is so long with not being too busy or commercialized. This is our fourth time here and will be coming back.

We stayed off of Tuna Lane. It's much quieter than Virginia Beach, and its approximately 30 minutes away from the huge tourist spots. This was ideal for our family vacation! A lot less people, but the same great quality of beach. Just no huge hotels. Definitely for those looking for a more relaxing experience.

Where else can you sleep with the ocean at your front door for only $13 a night? It is so peaceful with no one around. I love camping here. Took the solar shower and hand sanitizer and had a great time. We had two campsites one on the beach where we slept and one with a picnic table and an... More
