Nice quiet beach south of the boardwalk area. There are lifeguards and picnic shelters at Little Island Park. Virginia Beach residents can reserve the shelters and pay reduced parking fees. There is usually ample parking as they expanded the lot recently. There are showers, bathrooms, and changing rooms available. There is also an exclusive fishing area just down the beach.

Great family beach, not crowded, a lot of room to spread out. Hope to return. We had 3 families, and 10 people, golfing close by, and if you get bored you can always drive a little ways to Virginia beach and all the stores.

Even though there are definitely tourists that come to Sandbridge in the Summer, I feel that Sandbridge is mostly a local's beach. It doesn't have the crowded restaurants and hotels like the resort area of Virginia beach, but it has more space to spread out and enjoy simply being at beach. The beach is clean and some areas have lifeguards.... More

We have been going to Sandbridge Beach for years and we love it! There are a couple of parking lots for public access for $5/day. There are nice bathrooms, which makes for a much better experience if you aren't renting a house at Sandbridge. The public parking areas can get a bit crowded, but you can definitely find spots that... More

Areas of the beach nearest public parking are a bit crowded, but if you are able to hike down a bit, you can find parts where it is underpopulated. Be aware that there are not lifeguards in these less densely populated sections. The boogie boarding is excellent.

Loved the area of sandbridge va, but hated Siebert Realty's Brenton Farm @ 3004 Sandfiddler Road. Air conditioner DID NOT WORK properly. it was hot the week we went and never were we told the air conditioner would be able to cool the small house enough to live there. Realtor didn't help much even though they sent someone to look... More

We took our one year old here for her first beach experience and it was awesome. We parked at the little cape park which is 5 dollars a day, well worth it and much better than the first lot you reach. The beach was not crowded and the water was great. The bath house and playground were nice too. Really... More

Loved it. Beautiful beach and much less crowded and touristy than VA Beach. The tide and currents were a bit strong though. May have just been the day we went. Kids (6&11) loved it!
