Chick's beach has always been a magnet for locals who want to get away from the crowds at the oceanfront, and there are the usual beach bum characters in the neighborhood. Very chill and relaxed atmosphere.

This is one place I am sure to always go. It has a great dinner with a wonderful view of the inlet. The seafood is awesome! Service is excellent!

The only reason I couldn’t give it five stars is because there’s not much bathroom access and the waves are pretty calm so it's not a surfer or swimmer's ideal spot. Besides that, Chicks Beach is one of my favorite places in Virginia Beach. This is the local’s spot to hang, and being a local, I’m a fan of walks... More

This is just a simple beach to get away from it all...literally. There are no food vendors, sidewalks, or any kind of amenities...just the plain quiet beach on the Chesapeake Bay near where it opens up (connects) to the Atlantic Ocean. Therefore you will enjoy SHALLOW, CALM, and WARMER waters...minimal to no waves. If you like peace and quiet and... More

Don't bother with the beach front traffic, park quietly and enjoy smaller waves and memory building experiences with your younger children.

Went based on reviews and couldn't of been happier. Parking is very limited but totally worth circling the block a few times! Beach was extremely clean.

Once you find parking, a short walk to the beach brings you to a day or evening of fun and relaxation. This is still mostly a neighborhood beach, so there are no public restrooms or vendors for food/drink. Bring your cooler (no glass!), blanket, and toys. The bay is great for kids, because there are rarely waves and the beach... More

Beautiful, amazing, great view...can't say enough about this beach. Avoid the crowds and come here instead of the boardwalk. Calmer waves, fewer crowds, and dolphins are often playing off shore. Great time. Hard to find parking, but worth it.

I guess I do not want to let every one in on this great beach, but I will. It is great. Can you imagine going to the beach in August and having most of the space to yourself. The dogs plan on the sand and in the serf, the water is gentle so it is especially good for the little... More
