Chincoteague Island --America's #1 Beach Town by AOL TRAVEL-- means miles of natural beaches combining Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge & Assateague National Seashore

The small town beach of Cape Charles hugs the Chesapeake Bay as do the sands at Bay Creek Resort & Club, Kiptopeke State Park, Savage Neck Natural Area Preserve, and Sunset Beach Resort. 
Most unique is our working waterman's village and undiscovered beaches of Tangier Island.

Out-of-this-world secluded beaches can be found on over a dozen, uninhabited Seaside Barrier islands. Pull up your one private isle with eco-tour guides.

The Town’s beach extends one-half mile along Bay Avenue with a paved walkway bordering the length of the beachfront. Residents and visitors of the Town use the beach for swimming, sunbathing and similar recreational pursuits. Public access onto the beachfront is provided by two wooden walkovers located near the end of Tazewell and Randolph Avenues. The Pavilion and several park benches are located on a paved walkway. The Pavilion is one of the Town’s prominent landmarks, serving as a visual symbol for the Town and featured on the Town’s seal. Restroom facilities are also available for users of the public beach.

Relax on this small town-friendly beach, alongside the warm, calm waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Also quaint gazebo and new fishing pier, all within steps of the historic downtown, perfect for lunch and shopping.

The Town’s beach is the only public beach on the Eastern Shore of Virginia that does not require an entrance fee.
