Virginia Beach offers not one but three beaches where families can play and relax. These beaches are Resort Beach, Sandbridge Beach, and Chesapeake Bay Beach. All are family-friendly, and each has a unique feel. Resort Beach is great for high-energy activities and provides a wide array of options for shopping, dining, and entertainment. The pace of life at Sandbridge Beach is a bit more relaxed. It is surrounded by oceanfront vacation rentals and long walking paths. Chesapeake Bay Beach is very family-friendly.
Its long boardwalk provides visitors with beautiful views of the bay, First Landing State Park, and Cape Henry Lighthouse. No matter which beach guests choose to enjoy, there are an abundance of accommodation options to fit every budget throughout Virginia Beach.
Chesapeake Bay is part of the Virginia Beach area. It is particularly popular among families because of its stunning views of nature and wealth of family-friendly activities. First Landing State Park and Cape Henry Lighthouse are two of its most popular attractions. The state park contains lagoons and a variety of rare plants, and there are areas for fishing, boating, and picnicking, and there are plenty of walking trails visitors can use to explore different parts of the park.
The park also has cabins and campground space for rent. At Cape Henry Lighthouse, guests can learn a bit about the history of shipping and military activities in the Chesapeake Bay. The lighthouse is located on a military base, so it's important that guests over the age of 18 bring a form of ID when they visit. Photo: sherryvsmith/Fotolia
