“Timing is Everything”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

The off-season isn't so bad and prices are cheaper.
Crowds get insane July - Aug. Go in May or Sept.
Lots to do - families, bars, outdoors, ocean, golf, etc...
But locals can be kind of rough around the edges.
Large military presence in the area from all branches.

“Very clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

The beach was very well maintained except the porto pottys could be cleaned better. The water was murky we were told by a lifeguard a pipe burst north of the beach not sure what was released into the water ?

“Nice beach, well maintained, nice activities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a nice beach area, with plenty of varied activities. The beach sand is nice, and combed with machinery every morning.
The sand is the standard yellow/brown/orange color. It is not rocky, but it is not Pensacola / Destin white powder either.
The boardwalk, bike paths, and across the street activities are a nice touch.

“Get a Bike”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Get a bike and travel leisurely around town, near the boardwalk and get top discover more of Virginia Beach. The place draws all types of crowd that adds color and variety to the place. To stay away from the noise you will do better staying at hotels on the North side of the beach
