My husband and I frequent Buckroe Beach often during the summer. Nice clean beach! Water is shallow with nice sand bottom. Haven't ever seen any jellyfish. Very family friendly!

Kudos to the City of Hampton for providing an area that can cater to the relaxation and enjoyment of so many at one time! During the summer you can always find something going on that can peak your interest while visiting. This is not really the ideal beach for the hard core swimmer, as it has always been, from my...

Easy to find, clean beach with restrooms, showers and playground. Very safe. Parking is difficult on the weekend but worth the hassle. A definite must for people with children.

This was easy to get to and the water was just like VA Beach. It did have rocks right on shore and pier but less crowded. And way better than having to drive through that traffic of the tunnel.

Very relaxing, music was played live & recorded on boardwalk for dancing & listening pleasure. Hotel right off beach/boardwalk. Water was warm & calm & the sand was clean. There is also a picnic area with picnic tables & benches, with room to bring your own tents, tables & chair's. There are also vendors available.

It was a nice beach with plenty of parking, bath rooms, ice cream truck driving thru every 10 minutes. Plenty of space so you aren't sitting on top of each other. It gets a little sketch once the sun starts setting so I don't recommend staying out there late. Nice day trip to the beach, better than VA beach but... More

A very small but quaint beach. It does have a fishing pier. No activities for children. A great spot for those who want to be at the beach but avoid the hustle and bustle of Virginia Beach.

It is a nice beach if you don't want to travel to VA beach. Art in the part was this weekend and there were a lot of activities.
