Awesome Views!

We walked along the shoreline and saw several pods of dolphins, collected lots of shells, and just enjoyed the view. Gorgeous sunrises!

No matter what the time of the year this is a beautiful place. Not too far from tourist attractions like the boardwalk and shops, but far enough away to provide a more relaxing experience. The area is home to quaint places and very nice people. I love to go to Sandbridge!

We happened across this beach and pier on our way back from the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. It is worth the stop to watch the surfers, kids playing in the sand, people fishing, etc. Nothing really out of the ordinary but just a nice place to relax.

Sandbridge is a run of the mill beach, in my opinion. It is clean and quiet, but is not as much fun as Bethany, the Outer Banks, or Myrtle Beach. Would I go back? Absolutely. Craig Herberg

Sandbridge has one grocery store and a few restaurants. It's usually quiet in the off season and much less crazy than Virginia Beach proper. You can walk for miles on the beach and enjoy the sun and fun. They have a great fishing pier and a wildlife preserve at the end of the island. A great place for a family... More

We love this beach! Is called sand bridge for a reason because there's sand everywhere! It's a beautiful, clean, quiet beach. There's not much to do in Sandbridge, but that's what we like. It's a great place to enjoy each other, and the ocean. I've been twice and will continue to return!

Feel like a small town island but there lots of homes. The beach are similar to Virginia Beach but smaller.

I first visited Sandbridge as a vacationer from New Jersey when I was 8. Not much has changed except for the size of the houses. Limited parking and not commercialized, and beach is never crowded to excess.

Beautiful scenery and ocean front - conveniently located to drive near VA Beach - but the week we rented was so windy, only one adult in our group swam in the ocean. Our rental had a great unground swimming pool - but with the weather being so windy, the kids enjoyed playing around it rather than in it. We had... More
