Park like beach that is never crowded

I love this small unknown beach. It is actually a nice park. Not too crowded and you can really enjoy your time there. Also clean.

On a recent day trip to the Hampton Roads area, my family decided to check out what I would only loosely describe as a "beach". The location sits in a run down part of town flanked by at least one dive motel and some run down housing. I don't believe you would want to be anywhere near here after dark... More

Dirty food trucks. Rocky beach with a lot of trash just below the sand. Dead plants. Red necks in abundance. Area has a stark, almost dead, and dirty feel about it. Sad.

Nice Beach Enjoyed Summmer Concerts; food trucks available during summer concerts. Nice crowd. Venue large enough to support crowd but parking is not good.

We moved to Hampton In Julyour and we are at buchroe beach atleast once a week. It's clean and it's family friendly. In the summer time there's a food truck and ice cream trucks at the beach. This is nice because we are able to go to the beach and not have to pack a bunch of snacks and drinks.... More

My husband and I frequent Buckroe Beach often during the summer. Nice clean beach! Water is shallow with nice sand bottom. Haven't ever seen any jellyfish. Very family friendly!

Kudos to the City of Hampton for providing an area that can cater to the relaxation and enjoyment of so many at one time! During the summer you can always find something going on that can peak your interest while visiting. This is not really the ideal beach for the hard core swimmer, as it has always been, from my...

Easy to find, clean beach with restrooms, showers and playground. Very safe. Parking is difficult on the weekend but worth the hassle. A definite must for people with children.

This was easy to get to and the water was just like VA Beach. It did have rocks right on shore and pier but less crowded. And way better than having to drive through that traffic of the tunnel.
