Beautiful beach!

Virginia beach is not what it was when I last visited 25 years ago. This place has been revamped... read more

Cerca Del Mar was the perfect place to stay, particularly if you were there just before the season opened.

Loved the "No Swearing" signs throughout the beach. It was nice to know the city cares so much... read more

I always enjoy this beach. It is clean, well groomed and the crowds spread out. The view from beach side hotels and condos is soothing.

My family cut our vacation short after paying to be in a parking lot on 21st. And Pacific avenue and still being towed because the tow company "didn't see my parking ticket" they damaged my vehicle and won't take responsibility..i cancled my hotel and everything. A city which let's companys prey on tourist will not see my dollars. Avoid them at all cost. Take pictures of your vehicle, where it's parked and your parking pass or become a victim. Other then that the beach was very clean and sunrise was beautiful.

Dear craig t,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us via TripAdvisor. Many people work very hard all year long to ensure the Virginia Beach experience is one which visitors want to repeat again and again. While we do hope that everyone in Virginia Beach conducts themselves in a manner which allows everyone to peacefully coexist, it is an unfortunate reality that there are always going to be those who refuse to do so. And, by their actions, negatively impact someone else's visit.

We hope you will return again to visit one (or both) of our other beach communities: Sandbridge and Chesapeake Bay Beach. Many visitors who aren't interested in the bustling Resort Beach find these alternate beaches exactly what they were looking for. We hope you'll return to see which one is your favorite. We are sorry you encountered such unpleasantness during your visit and hope you will reconsider visiting again.

Gratefully,
Team Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach has long been and remains the BEST place for families and romantic couples to visit on vacation on the East coast. The beaches are kept clean, well lit and safe. There are infinite dining options as well as hotel options for every budget. You'll have fun whether you fly or load up the family truckster and pack the boogie boards. Pull up a beach lounger and enjoy.

I wouldn't go into it, due to the nastiness and craps floating around in it too.
It also smells too.

I've been to many beaches on the East Coast and in the Caribbean but Virginia Beach ranks up with the best. It is wide and level and inviting. Hotels on the beach front are just that, ON the beach front! Very comfortable place to visit.
