If you are looking to get away from the resort crowd, Sandbridge can offer an alternative. False Cape State Park is at the southern end of the beach, there's a fishing pier, and the crowds are smaller. You won't find commercialization here. A small market supports the rental community, but the commercial amenities aren't far away.

I live very near Sandbridge Beach - it is the choice location for locals as it's not highly visited by loads of tourists. There is a state park as well at it's end. Close to great restaurants and the main Virginia Beach Strip if some needed "busy time" is required!

Rented a beach house a year in advance. Had rented from them once the prior year. Wish I would have done some research first but I didn't till I got scammed. I found out six weeks later, my daughter was pregnant with our first grandchild. Had put down a deposit but knew a newborn wouldn't trave an eight hour drive... More

Got a blast of warmth in Feb. Got to watch humpback whales pretty close into the beach. Would love to go back and ride fat tire bikes down the beach.

Almost like being at the outer banks in the Carolinas. Sometime I would like to rent a beach house there when we visit. There are so many nice homes and seems like such a relaxing place to stay.

We truly enjoy visiting here. Watching people on the beach playing games , relaxing. People on the pier trying to hook the big one. If you down a little further you were be able to experience the ground at Back Bay. Pack a lunch bring your camera and enjoy the day.

This stretch of shoreline draws a very different crowd then does the Boardwalk, and the surfing is better. With a small town feel, Sandbridge has just what you need without surplus. It's where you go to relax and enjoy the sand and surf.
