Sandbridge - The best kept secret beach in Virginia Beach
Last edited: April 20, 2017
We've got a secret for you! Can you keep it? When many people think of Virginia Beach, they see a beautiful boardwalk, soft sand, the gentle waves of the Atlantic, and high-rise hotels towering above the shoreline. This is where the majority of visitors stay during their vacation. Due to our popularity as a beach destination, "the resort city" gets a bit crowded during the summer.
Best secret beach near Virginia Beach
If you’re looking for more privacy... if you’re looking for a family-friendlier beach... if you’re looking for a pristine beach that’s just minutes from the Virginia Beach resorts, there's a completely type of beach just south waiting for you. While sporting the same soft sand, sun, and fun, it lacks the hotels and crowds associated with the resort town.
It's such a secret, many of the locals in Hampton Roads don't even know about it. Welcome to Sandbridge.
Sandbridge is affectionately known as "The Outer Banks of Virginia." If you've ever been to Nags Head, NC, then you know exactly what we're talking about. This area is mostly comprised of beach homes and various shopping and restaurants sprinkled around. It's an incredible way to relax during your vacation. The town is very laid back and features mostly beach cottages available for weekly rentals.
Here are some of the differences:
- No crowds.
- No traffic.
- No jet noise.
- No oceanfront hotels.
- Less shopping.
