If you want to getaway from the crowd at Virginia Beach and enjoy a serene beach front then Sandbridge is the best option.This is not too far from Virginia Beach.The drive to the beach is nice too.

“beautiful sand and gentle surf most of the time.”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

I almost hate to review this because those of us who live here love this beach partly because it isn't overrun by tourists. This beach generally attracts a family quiet crowd. The boardwalk is great, with wide sandy beach, but is often very crowded, and often locals avoid it in the summer. This is a clean beach with beautiful sand and is well maintained. There is good parking and some facilities particularly in Little Island Park which is further south in Sandbridge. There are a few restaurants but not right on the beach and no fast food types of places. Sandbridge is more like the Outer Banks used to be.

“Worth the extra drive time!”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

This is the best part of the coastline in Virginia Beach. The beach is more isolated and can even be desolate in the late Fall, but the views are spectacular. It is the perfect place to get away from the crowds (at least off season) and just enjoy a quiet walk on the beach. There is a wide selection of places to eat both in Sandbridge and on your way there or back. It is also a great place to take your dog for some beach adventures. It truly is the Outer Banks of Virginia.

Like to go on long bike rides here during the offseason. The ocean is beautiful, very little traffic.
