“Sorry homeless folk”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Visited VB for a convention in the off season. The homeless people were all up and down the Beach front, sleeping on the benches day and night with their belongings. Noticed the port a johns set up on the Boardwalk. The city was in the process of setting up Christmas decorations on the beach evidenced by the mounds with stakes in them being formed the week we were there. was cold the week also, so not really able to do much beach visiting. King Neptune was really a nice tribute to VB.

“Just as good as Myrtle Beach!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Have really enjoyed the improvements in the beach area. Clean, well-lit, well-maintained. Glad that there are uniformed policemen everywhere. Gives you that "safe" feeling while enjoying the beach! Awesome boardwalk too!

“Awesome weather, awesome beach”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We live in North Carolina and have been to VA beach for several times. The beach is awesome with high tides and soft sands. Great facilities there as well. The only problem is parking. You'd better find a place to park before you go there!

“Off-Season Dredging a Real Turn-off”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

During our early October visit the city was pumping dredge material from somewhere and spewing black liquid into the water right at the beach. It looked horrible and contained chunks of who-knows-what. While it might have been harmless and no big deal, the simple sight of it was a HUGE turn-off. It will probably be a long time until we return, because this black sludge really turned us off.
