Many visitors find their way back to our sandy shores year after year, making a trip to our shores a favorite family tradition.
So, what makes everyone love vacationing and living here so much?
World Record Holding Beach
The Guinness Book of World Records has awarded us the title of "Longest Pleasure Beach." We have 35 miles of coastline waiting to be explored. Are you looking for great campgrounds? Do you want to swim alongside dolphins in the wild? Are you looking for your first Billfish catch? Do you want to return to work with a killer tan that makes everyone envious? You'll find everything you need right here.
Where the Atlantic meets our shore is our world famous boardwalk. Here you'll find a 3-mile long concrete path that guides you through 59 blocks of popular statues, stages for music and entertainment, shops, restaurants, hotels, and gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Whether you're walking around during the day or night, there’s never a dull moment when strolling along this boardwalk. Don’t be surprised when you run into unexpected art shows, musical performances, or festivals on the Boardwalk - especially in the summer!
If you like to roller-blade, skateboard, or bike ride, there is a bike path that is parallel to the Boardwalk. It's designed for everything with non-motorized wheels. Get your wheelie on without worrying about pedestrians!
Beautiful and Scenic Oceanfront
Naturally, this one of the main reasons so many people come to visit. It's so easy to relax when you're sitting or laying in the warm sand by the gentle yet powerful lapping waves of the Atlantic. Enjoy swimming in the warm ocean and experience the health benefits of the salt water and other healthy minerals you'll absorb at the VA Beach Oceanfront
. It provides its guests with a super clean atmosphere to enjoy while soaking up the sun on soft tan sand.
Most Romantic Beach
Last year, we were rated one of the most romantic cities in the United States
. That's quite an accolade for our small community. Whether you're newly in love or celebrating your 30th year anniversary, there's no better romantic vacation than our shores. We have many cozy waterfront restaurants, bed & breakfast inns, and quiet, scenic views to enjoy with the person you love.
Your Safety is important
Choosing a safe vacation destination is extremely important. Our city greatly values safety. High-resolution cameras are placed throughout the oceanfront, helping to deter would-be criminals from exploiting visitors. With regard to swimming, lifeguards are standing by to provide assistance when necessary. They are alert and always attentive. Last year, over 100 lives were saved. There are 50 lifeguard stations strategically placed between 1st and 89th street.
If you have a fear of sharks, you can worry a lot less here. In over 100 years, there have only been five bites off the coast of Virginia. Shark bite frequency greatly increases the further south you drive.
Popular and Historic Landmarks
If you love history, then you'll want to visit us. We have an incredible array of landmarks that have people from all over the world coming to learn more while they take a break from life. Whether it’s the gigantic and awe-inspiring King Neptune Statue at 31st Street on the Boardwalk
, or the Naval Aviation Monument also located on the boardwalk
, there’s something to see that everyone can appreciate. There’s quite a lot to learn if you are a vacationing history buff. We recommend visting the historic Old Coast Guard Station and many of the other museums
ready to share the incredible stories of our past.
Mouth Watering Restaurants
Everyone, tourists and locals both, cannot get enough of the delicious meals served at our world famous restaurants. Many of these restaurants specialize in seafood. It’s only natural because plenty of these places to eat are just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean! If you’re not into seafood, there’s much more to VA Beach dining. There are a ton of amazing Italian, Greek, Mexican, and American food options for you and your family to choose. You won’t forget to eat your dessert in this city because we are full of ice cream shops that are to die for, especially during the summer season.
High Quality Oceanfront Hotels
If you’re looking for just the right amount of comfort during your VB vacation, you’ve come to the right place. On our site, we only present our readers with the highest quality hotels at the beach. You’ll never have to worry about getting stuck with outdated, stinky, and plain old gross hotel rooms.

Many of the places to stay offer continental breakfasts for maximum convenience and most have indoor heated pools for maximum fun!
Affordable and Relaxing
Last but certainly not least, the savings. In mid-April 2017, VBC will begin offering our annual VIP discount card. We are currently negotiating much higher discounts than the free coupons you can easily receive at every street corner. Our goal is to save your family hundreds of dollars on your vacation, making our town the most affordable and smart choice for your oceanfront vacation. More information to come as more businesses join us to help you choose our beloved beach.
