We were only here for a late afternoon walk, as we were driving through on a longer trip. Cape Charles was our stop over. What a beautiful beach. It was a weekday in April, so it was all very quiet. We had a chance to walk along the length of the beach, to walk out to the end of the... More

Easy walk to street parking to pier and beach. Both were clean. We were able to watch ospreys adding branches to their nest from the pier. The beach was clean, sandy and shallow. There is a "LOVE" sculpture for sweet photo ops. A lot of the downtown businesses were not open on the Thursday in April that we visited. Would... More

Have been here in the past and it is a great family beach. No big waves and calm waters. You can wade out a good distance and it doesn't go over your head, they have bathrooms and a big pier.

We enjoyed walking out on the fishing pier and down the beach. It was very calm and peaceful. Seams like a great beach for very young children due to very peaceful water. Great view of fishing boats.

Nice, clean, beach for everyone to enjoy. Calm water, lots of digging areas for kids and lots of beach area to enjoy. Very serene and relaxing. Not crowded and there is a fishing area as well.

Nice clean bayside beach, white sand and 3 inch waves. Great for small children. We went in April, I would guess it can be packed in the summer

The fishing pier offered a nice view. Even saw an Osprey on her nest! I would imagine it would be crowded in the summer. Very clean and well maintained!
