Great Beach with miles of white fine sand

The water was 80% and sun was out. The wave were small but rideable. The beach goes on for miles but was not that crowded.

Second time at this beach since June. This weekend saw some pretty severe storms, but the beach was very clean the next day and all of the public accesses are clean mad well kept.

We return to Sandbridge VA once a year. My husband loves fishing on the pier and you can buy a weekly pass for $25. The amount of people on the beach is 95% less then what you find on VB. If you are looking for a laid back beach vacation without all of the noise of VB, this is the... More

Sandbridge Beach , Virginia is very family oriented and is a great place to rent a vacation home for the whole family. The atmosphere is very pleasant and quiet with very little traffic. You can enjoy the ocean, and many local attractions. There is a Natural park that you can walk, run by the Federal Gov't. It is $5.00 to... More

We enjoyed our week at Sandbridge this year even more than last year. Condo is right next to the fishing pier so the guys were kept busy. Beach and pools are lovely and quiet. Highly recommend if you are looking for a serene stay. Limited night life - you have to drive about 15 minutes into Virginia Beach. Public park... More

Beautiful beach. We enjoyed being less crowded than up at Virginia Beach. Much less commercialized. A great beach to walk - I did not swim but was told the sandbar extends out pretty far. This was a return after many many years - was surprised to find that there are oil rigs off the coast. Sad but necessary I guess.

Glad we ventured down here and away from the VA Beach resort strip. Easy parking (for $5) right by the beach, huge playground, bathrooms, changing rooms and showers. Plenty of lifeguards, but not much economy close by.

This is one of my favorite beaches as it is not usually crowded and away from the hustle and bustle of the oceanfront. Great place to play beach volleyball, frisbee etc. usually see dolphin swimming in the water as well.
