Chesapeake Beach, known among the locals as Chic's Beach, is one of the most popular beaches in Virginia Beach. This lovely stretch of sand runs for about 2 miles between the Lynnhaven Inlet and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. The area was developed as a beachfront residential community in the early 1900s and was used as a lookout during WWII. The area was known for Chic's, a popular place selling ice cream and limeade. It is a neighborhood of single-family homes, condominiums, beach cottages, duplexes, and apartments. Popular Ocean Park is also stretched along the beach, and hiking and biking is great along the sandy edge of the water. The Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base is located at the west side of the area, connecting long stretches of protected beaches, which harbor marine life. Popular activities on the beach are boating, jet skiing, paddleboarding, hiking along the beach, and making sand castles.
