If you’re lucky enough to live along the coast of Virginia or the Eastern Shore, you’ll likely enjoy regular access to the ocean, crashing waves, and wide sandy beaches. Virginia Beach is undoubtedly one of the crown jewels of our state, yet it’s by no means the only beach that visitors enjoy. If you’re curious to experience some of Virginia’s non-ocean beaches, you won’t be disappointed by the sheer beauty of the Bay, riverbanks, and manmade beaches. Plus, these destinations tend to be far less crowded than their oceanfront counterparts. So load up your car with towels, water, and sunscreen, and prepare for an epic day at the beach when you visit any of these waterfront destinations!
