beaches in August

We want to visit the last week of August but are not sure the water will be warm enough for the kids at the beach. Can anyone tell me if we will be able to get in the water?

Thanks for any help.

Be prepared I have been in July and it has been just chilly and then in August and it has been much cooler. It just depends on the storms in the Atlantic

when my daughter was younger and we didn't have to worry about school schedules we used to go down the first week of sept to get off season rates and the weather was always great- july 99 we went down and was cold and windy until the end of the week, so i guess it just depends??

leaving this friday coming and can't wait, i'm so ready!!

Just got back from Chincoteague - the beaches were busy but not overwhelming! I thought the water was cool and just waded a bit, but there were people further out and it looked like they were really enjoying the water. August should be just fine!
