I loved the beach and the park! great waves, and sandy area! I have never suffered from sunburn on all my visits to USA beaches, but this visit was so phenomenal that I didn't want to get out of the water!

This is a very nice beach. I love to just go and hang out with the kids. This is great free fun for the entire family and the kids love to spend time there.

What can I say, it's a beach... It was a clean area but there were lots of jellyfish in the shallow waters while we were there so we couldn't fully enjoy it. I am from the Gulf Coast of Florida and I personally do not care for the east coast beaches.

We took our young kids to Buckroe Beach for a long weekend and loved it! The beach is lovely, with mellow waves and plenty of space. Even on a summer weekend, it isn't overly crowded. There is also a nice playground next to the beach, and plenty of parking.

We recently visited Buckroe Beach after a doctor appointment in Charlottesville. I wasn't really expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. First of all the park portion is very nice, there is areas to cook out as well as a play ground for the children to also have some land play as well. The beach itself seemed more of a natural...

I went here taking my grandson and goddaughter. Great beachfront for couples or families. Nice playground area for kids. Only downside, no decent places for overnight stay at the beach. You have to drive 15 to 20 mins away for a nice hotel stay. But don't let that deter you. I love this beachfront. Enjoy!! 👙👣🕶

With Va Beach being nearby, this is a great beach for a more low key beach vibe if you want to avoid the crowds, its located in Hampton Va and offers play areas for the kids, a dog run, picinic areas and is a great area for sea shell hunters. The area is surrounded by year round residential homes (as... More
