A great place to unwind and relax on the beach, take a stroll on the riverwalk, shop, and eat! Great place for young ones to play in the sand. Very clean area and very well kept.

Smaller beach but it is very clean and a nice area to walk around. Cute shops and restaurants to eat at around the beach. The water had dolphins in it and my kids LOVED it!

Beautiful white soft sand. Extremely suitable for towels or beach chairs. Very little debris or trash. Picked up some while walking, but everyone should. Parking across the street. Outdoor showers available. High and low cost Restaurants walking distance, including ice cream.

Yorktown Virginia, York River waterfront is a beautifully maintained/landscaped area with some nice restaurants, shops with a water fountain. Parking is nearby. A "Free" Trolley makes regular day time stops in the Yorktown area.

I love going to the Yorktown Waterfront. The little shops are cute. Riverwalk Restaurant and Water Street Grille are fantastic and on cooler non-busy evenings, it's even enjoyable to stop off after dinner and just walk the waterfront for a nice change of scenery. However,...More

We loved this beach! There are several roped off swimming holes. A nice sandy area to play in for the little ones. A bathroom with a changing room. Awesome!

Beach is small and clean, It is perfect to relax and get away from it all. There are also boat tours available.

A great place to picnic or simply chill for the afternoon. The grandkids had a blast swimming and exploring along the York River.

There are still some jelly fish. As the water gets cooler, you will see less and less.

Matthew (above) answered your ? Quite thoroughly. Though I might add, the beach upriver has no lifeguards and I would emphasize the boat traffic is also more congested there. Also sea nettles might be a problem if you don't... More

The beach swim area is marked by buoys. It is fairly modest in size. The river will have a lot of boating traffic on the 4th of July weekend and would not be safe for a swim of that length for most people. In calm weather... More
