We recently visited Buckroe Beach after a doctor appointment in Charlottesville. I wasn't really expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. First of all the park portion is very nice, there is areas to cook out as well as a play ground for the children to also have some land play as well. The beach itself seemed more of a natural...

If you're looking for a great place to relax and have fun in the sun, look no further than Buckroe Beach. Great views, beautiful park facilities, refreshing water, and ample places to park. Bring the whole family !!!

I went here taking my grandson and goddaughter. Great beachfront for couples or families. Nice playground area for kids. Only downside, no decent places for overnight stay at the beach. You have to drive 15 to 20 mins away for a nice hotel stay. But don't let that deter you. I love this beachfront. Enjoy!! 👙👣🕶

The area is surrounded by year round residential homes (as... More

This is a bay beach with a promenade and a playground. The water is nice; however, not quite as nice as Fort Monroe Beach.

Buckroe Beach is at last exit before hitting the Harbor Bridge Tunnel into Newport and Virginia Beach -- right where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. We originally found it through Trip Advisor, and this place is a hidden gem. First -- it's free! Free parking and the beach is free. It's clean, with great sand. The water is... More

Beach has police patrolling and lifeguards constantly. Located by a public park. Free parking. Can walk past private homes and the beach is no where near as crowded at Virginia beach.
