Nice clean place to stay. Easy to find. We stayed in an efficiency room with 1 king bed. The room was very large for a motel room. I would definitely stay there again.

We wandered around after a delicious dinner. The area was quiet -- a few fishermen and walkers. It is a beautiful spot for photos.

Such a nice beach, some days there are very few people on the beach. The beach is great for families.

Cape Charles beach is the perfect vacation destination for a family with small children. On the bay, the waves are gentle, and there's a public bathroom by the pier which is great for fishing and crabbing .

Easy walk to street parking to pier and beach. Both were clean. We were able to watch ospreys adding branches to their nest from the pier. The beach was clean, sandy and shallow. There is a "LOVE" sculpture for sweet photo ops. A lot of...More

Have been here in the past and it is a great family beach. No big waves and calm waters. You can wade out a good distance and it doesn't go over your head, they have bathrooms and a big pier.

We enjoyed walking out on the fishing pier and down the beach. It was very calm and peaceful. Seams like a great beach for very young children due to very peaceful water. Great view of fishing boats.

I know the cottage we rented, Cassatt Cottage through Cape Charles Cottages had those at the home itself. They also provided a beach wagon and sand/beach items and towels for the house- awesome!
The most important question for us are dogs allowed on the beach in September (after Labor Day?) It sounds awesome. Please reply.

yeah I think the sign said before 9am and after 9pm they are allowed now
I see where no dogs are allowed from 9-9pm, however what about before 9am, can you walk a dog in early morning? Thank you
