“Nice public beach with parking and easy access!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The beach area is very easy to get to with lots of parking available. A nice pier for walking out--with lights for evening access as well. Nice!

“great fishing pier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Cape Charles deserves kudos for their great efforts to build and maintain an extensive public fishing pier. We weren't fishing the weekend we were there, but were thrilled to have this opportunity to step out into the Bay. We had a few neighbors in the afternoon, but enjoyed a private, romantic walk out onto the lit pier after dinner one night. It was great.

“Quiet and Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Loved how quiet and clean this beach is. It is also very shallow which was great for kids but didn't provide the most refreshment.

“Surprised at how nice the beach was...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

It was not huge like the OBX where we usually go but very nice and no one there after Labor Day. I would go back and enjoy the beach next time.
