Virginia

Ocean and Bay Beaches

Virginia Beach is the “World’s Longest Pleasure Beach,” according to the Guinness Book of World Records? It boasts more than 35 miles of ocean and bay beaches stretching from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay to Virginia’s southern border.

With 35 miles of waterfront property, Virginia Beach has long been considered a “classic American beach vacation” spot. In the resort area, newly-landscaped pedestrian beach entrances are easy to find, and parking is ample. If your idea of a "day at the beach" is more relaxed, try a tranquil vacation spot along the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Swimmers will enjoy the bay's protected shallow waters, and parents will find its waves are gentle enough for even the youngest members of the family.

The beach has been expanded to wider than a football field. In 2001, a $22 million sand replenishment project pumped 3.2 million cubic yards of sand on the existing beachfront. In all, Virginia Beach has invested more than $300 million in resort improvements.
In Virginia Beach, a total of 14 miles of beach is open to the public.
