The bay beaches are by far the best beaches for families with young children. The bay is relatively shallow with almost no waves. There are often tidal pools to play in and the water is calm enough for floats. The beach is also pretty empty which means you can actually sit back and watch your kids have fun rather then... More

The lack of waves was perfect for our family. We floated around, swam, played volleyball, and threw the ball around in the ocean. The view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge was an extra special treat. Parking was tough, but the quietness and lack of tourists was a plus. Next time we hope to do some stand up paddle boarding with... More

It's on the bayside so you won't get the waves. However, it's nice, clean and not overcrowded with easy access. Good for your low key day out.

It's a wonderful place to go and get away from the majority of the tourist in the area. It was clean and without all of the shops that help tourist spend their money.

I almost hate writing that, because I like it to stay a local's beach. Great for families because the waves are fairly mild. Down side is no public bathrooms and parking can be an issue.
