Chick's beach has been a local favorite since I was a teenager. It's not as crowded as the VA Beach strip, and the bay water is much calmer than the ocean, so it's better for people with small children. There are many restaurants closeby, so...More

I have always like Chicks Beach since the 70s it doesn't have a rush feel like the Virginia Beach area. Romantic walks on the beach will make everyone happy.

Not as crowded as oceanfront. Gentle surf and nice bay views. Parking can be a challenge, especially on long weekends.

Great beach for the locals-no waves but great for swimming! Not crowded but hard to find parking-boat ramp off shore drive has beach access but you can park in neighborhoods across the street

Nice beach! 🌊 unfortunately when I went it was still too cold out, so I didn't swim. However, it was still nice to spend sometime on the beach!

Hey My wife and I have visited VA Beach so much now that we feel like a local. I just have not found a place like you have described at Chicks Beach. Would you share where you stayed?

We rented a beach house on Seaview Ave. We had 3 adults, 3 children. The beach house was 3 levels and exceptionally well furnished. We found our beach house on the vacation rentals by owners.
Need a few apartments names for this area. Will be relocating to this area in June 2015.
