“Beautiful sunset!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

This beach is wonderful for young children and folks who don't want to spend a lot of time riding waves. It is about a half mile long. I enjoyed walking the beach and watching a delightful sunset. The pier is nice and long as well with abundant croaker fishing.

“Not much going on.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

This was a nice place at one point. Now there is really nothing there other than a beach, a cafe and maybe one other shop.

“Calmest beach ever......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

What a lovely, clean, old fashion beach. Not lots of people even on the weekends. During low tide you could walk out so far it was crazy. Dogs can go on the beach before 9am and after 9pm. No drama, not lots of rules just a great family beach!

“Kudos to the town and people of Cape Charles!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

This has to be one of the best kept secrets of the Eastern Shore of VA. Immaculate beach, lovely small town, extremely nice people, great for families, couples, seniors!! I've not seen a town take such care and pride in its beach in a long time. Just wonderful, highly recommend for a weekend or vacation!!!

“Go at sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is not a spectacular walk on the beach type place but it has a sunset like on the west coast. You will love it!
