Wonderful beach just outside the hotel. This vacation was designed to relax and rest on the beach and that's exactly what I did!

Virginia Beach is a very family oriented beach. The sand is well maintained. It's a nice size beach. During season there are areas to rent chairs & umbrellas.

We walked along the shore line and played in the ocean in temperatures that where not to hot or cold... Saw Dolphins and many ships. Jets over head but that is the charm of this beach.

Love the beach! It was a bit crowded but it was August. Parking can be an issue depending on arrival time but once you find it's downhill from there.

I had friends who are about an hour south of Virginia Beach and they said the same thing. The currents are coming from the north and not allowing the warm gulf currents to come through and warm the waters.

The beach is public and there is no charge, just walk on. We preferred the beach below 13th Avenue since it was less crowded and less noisy.
