Nice Beach

What a nice place to sit, take a walk, play games or just plain hang out. This beach is for all with a large playground for the kids.

Went hear in between basketball games at the Boo Williams tournament. It was 10 Minutes away, free and fairly clean with pretty sufficient parking. The beach was not too crowded either. The surf is calm due to being in the bay. Mostly families here and people just generally chilling out quietly.

Close by & much more low key than Virginia Beach. In Hampton VA. Very pretty park like waterfront with great hardscaping. Lengthy boardwalk that we've never walked the length of it. Very pleasant. Nice place for outdoor concerts. That being said, there is a great deal of nostalgia for what it used to be. Back in the early 60's, it... More

Been going for over 30 years. Beach no shops, attractions, no crowds. Just beautiful beaches. Can see Navy ships and cargo ships. No tunnel traffic. No parking fees. 70 miles from Richmond. Great lifeguards during season.

Went in April when it wasn't crowded. The beach was clean. There was a playground, grass areas and a walkway. Plenty of parking, but I have a feeling come summer it may be packed.

Nice beach/park on the bay. It was chilly and pretty deserted when we were there, but looks like it would be a nice place to take family in the summer.

We drove over to check this beach out. It is clean, the water is nice, there is a picnic area there as well. Little sketchy of the area surrounding it though.

Great time. Nice room regardless of the hurricane passing through. Stayed at Sans Souci motel. Just like an apartment without a stove. Handy working charcoal grills not far on grounds. Good shower. Friendly staff. Calm waters. Caught clams and fished. Lots of cocktails! The purple rain. Always call for correct prices. Close to everything. Less busy than Virginia Beach. Free... More
