Almost like being at the outer banks in the Carolinas. Sometime I would like to rent a beach house there when we visit. There are so many nice homes and seems like such a relaxing place to stay.

We truly enjoy visiting here. Watching people on the beach playing games , relaxing. People on the pier trying to hook the big one. If you down a little further you were be able to experience the ground at Back Bay. Pack a lunch bring your camera and enjoy the day.

This stretch of shoreline draws a very different crowd then does the Boardwalk, and the surfing is better. With a small town feel, Sandbridge has just what you need without surplus. It's where you go to relax and enjoy the sand and surf.

I take regular walks along this quiet beach, and love to take photos of the resident wild life. The fighter jets head into base over the beach so its not so quiet mid afternoon, but I am often the only person watching them come in. The beach is clean with several public access areas - but the best place for... More

This is a little gem of a beach away from the business of Virginia Beach, but close enough to the action. If you desire a quiet vacation with opportunities for activities close by, this is the beach for you.

The first couple of days on our visit the waves were rough and the lifeguards had the red flag out. We brought surf boards and boogie boards which we couldn't do much of the rough waves. We walked along the shore and play in the sand. The waves eventually calmed down and it was fun playing at the beach. When... More

I always see Sandbridge Beach on lists of '10 Best Beaches You've Never Heard Of' or 'Best Secluded Beaches' so while my husband and I are visiting Virginia Beach I wanted to check out Sandbridge Beach. It's a nice drive to the beach past a beautiful old church that was built in 1830, then a horse farm, then a farm... More
