I was told about this beach last year but decided to visit with my sister and her family during some free time from the family reunion. This beach is clean and was not crowded on the hot Saturday I visited. There were lifeguards on the beach. The only thing I did not like was the pier was reserved and the... More

Nice beach that our niece took us to while on vacation...clean and the kids had a great time. Parking is a bit of a walk, and bathroom facilities are a hike too. Lots of room as there weren't a lot of people on the day we went.

I loved this beach. It was clean. Lots of free parking. There are life guards on duty. The park has a playground, pavilions and grills. The beach has crab that you can catch. It is great for anyone.

The title says it all..I read review after review saying what a great beach this was. I'm not sure who the people leaving these reviews are. It was horrible. There was a strong police presence the night we went, but we still did not feel safe even walking along the beach. I would not recommend going to this beach...drive a... More

I love Buckroe Beach for the atmosphere. There is the perfect mix of beach fun, peace, and action. I love the live music on the weekends and how friendly everyone is! One of my favorite places!

We've come here to listen to music and to walk the boardwalk. Small little beach on the Chesapeake Bay, so there aren't any waves, but it's a nice place to relax anyway. The surrounding area has been rehabbed a bit so it looks nice on the drive in.

We have been to Buckroe Beach a few times and we love it. The beach is nice, clean, and not nearly as crowded as Virginia Beach. You definitely need to bring your own food and drink. Not a lot right on the beach. Water is pretty calm as it is in the Chesapeake Bay.

I am a lover of the outdoors and especially the seashore. Buckroe Beach is a great local beach to visit if you won't want to fight the crowds and traffic. The mild wave action make it safer for kids that the Atlantic ocean of VA beach but of course your kids must always be under your constant supervision. There are... More

I used to visit this beach often with my two small children. It is less known and not so crowded. A few times it was a little messy. Seaweed etc. but it's a beach. Not as fun as Virginia beach but still a good time.
