9 Little Known Beaches in Virginia That’ll Make Your Summer Unforgettable
Memorial Weekend is just around the corner, and that means summer is officially about to launch. Summer in Virginia means lots of outdoor activity, especially on the beaches. Luckily, we don’t have to travel too far to enjoy the sand and waves. You might remember an article we featured last year about some of our most beautiful beaches. This time, we’ll try to focus on some lesser-known areas where you can truly escape. While Virginia Beach is always worth the trip (and even worth the traffic), these beaches are a bit smaller and should be less crowded. It’s time to pack up your sunscreen and hit the beach!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
These 9 sandy spots are just some of a larger group of beautiful beaches in Virginia. Have you visited any of these places? If not, which do you plan on seeing this summer? We’d love to hear about your plans!
