We have been going to Sandbridge beach for years. We really like it. People who go there tend to be more locals and you avoid some of the worst of the resort crowd. Beach is close to parking, restroom and outside showers as well as a playground for kids. The only fee is for parking.

Off the beaten path but has parking, bathhouse and lifeguards. Perfect! It's where the locals go to the beach in season.

Our friends rented a 10 bedroom waterfront house for a wedding. It was nice and quiet, plenty of street parking. The sand is a little coarse and the color of brown sugar. Waves crashed right on the beach, so not great for surfing. But a beautiful beach for playing, walking, seeing incredible sunrises. A little chilly for us Floridians in... More

Resort area gets extremely crowded. Sandbridge has less people, has a little park area and bathrooms!

Summertime is always bustling around here but visiting Sandbridge in the winter and early spring gives you a different perspective. Usually I'm so busy looking for a house number that I don't notice all the surroundings but it's really amazing how much Sandbridge resembles the Outer Banks, particularly down by Little Island Park. There's a coziness and quaintness to Sandbridge.... More

We stay in virginia for a week almost every year. Every time we visit, Sandbridge is the highlight of the trip. The water is nice and the whole beach is very well kept. My favorite part is that its quiet. The sand isnt crowded with people so you have space away from others. Not far from Sandbridge is va beach... More

Quiet and relaxing stretch of sand, not like the boardwalk! Not cluttered with tons of shops and hotels, this is more of a diy and bring a cooler type of place. Great place to rent a cottage for a week or two and really get away from it all!!!
