“Tranquility on the Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

The sand is soft like talcum powder. The beach is narrow but spans quite a distance in length. The water is never very deep, perfect for those who just want to dabble in the sea. We had such a great time! The sunsets are gorgeous, a must see! This a a small, friendly town tucked away on the Eastern shore of Virginia. Once a bustling ferry town. Now an after thought on the way up and down Rt. 13. We ate at Kelly's Pub, one of two restaurants there in town. The food was very good, and the she crab soup was wonderful! We will definitely go back to this winsome town again.

“Nice Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Nice beach. The pier was huge. Quiet and just nice to walk around in the water. I didn't see any trash laying around. The bathroom was accessible and clean.

“Great for families, awesome sunset”

Beach has no waves, so is great for small children. The sunset over the Chesapeake Bay is beautiful!

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

We got here about 7am with our dogs and it was perfectly empty and still. I had my coffee while we all walked the beautiful beach and watched the sun coming up. Absolutely beautiful. No one gets up here until 9! It did seem a bit more crowded later in the afternoon. There's no ocean, just a bay, but it was wonderful.
