Sandbridge Beach is located in the resort city of Virginia Beach, however Sandbridge is on the quiet residential south end on a barrier island. We are sometimes called the Outer Banks of Virginia. The Atlantic Ocean is to the East and Back Bay is on the West side.
A mile south of our place is the Back Bay Wildlife Refuge and past that is the False Cape State Park (it is only accessible on foot, bike or boat). While exploring you may see a wild horse or boar, or even a whale swimming close to the shore.And if you like bird watching, there are plenty of water fowl and other birds to see.
20 minutes away Virginia Beach has all the amenities of a beach resort; a boardwalk, nightclubs, lots of restaurants, charter fishing boats and golf courses. A visit to the Marine Science Museum is a must. They now have a zipline course, called Adventure Park! Summer outdoor concerts with big national artists are at the closeby amphitheater.
If you want to stay close, Sandbridge Beach is a wonderful place to spend the day, and night. We have two local and locally owned restaurants, and a small family owned grocery with the best donuts ever. Kayaking in Back Bay or fishing off of the fishing pier are other ways to relax and enjoy your vacation. Bring your surfboards and come on.
We are one of only few places in Sandbridge that doesn't have a 7 night minimum during the summer season. Sorry, we do not serve breakfast, but the "Market" has the best donuts ever, coffee too!
