We've got a secret for you. There are two beaches in Virginia Beach -- the "strip", which is most known and frequented by tourists and Southern Virginia Beach, aka Sandbridge. Southern Virginia Beach is such a secret, even many locals don't know it exists.
These beaches couldn't be more different. If you're looking for shopping, active night life, high-rise hotels and the joy of crowds, the "strip" is for you! If you're looking for a super relaxing vacation without the traffic/hustle/bustle, then Southern Virginia Beach would be your ideal choice. It's commonly called "The Outer Banks of Virginia Beach" and is approximately 20 minutes from the strip.
Check back soon -- we'll have photos showing you how truly different these beaches are, even though both are beautiful and excellent choices for your Virginia Beach vacation!
