Sandbridge Beach. Want something different than the popular and crowded Virginia Beach? Pack your bags and head just a few miles from Virginia Beach’s resort strip to Sandbridge. Bear in mind, Sandbridge is isolated from the circus by Camp Pendelton. This isolation, however, makes Sandbridge Beach a delightful destination, hence the name “Outer Banks of Virginia”. Its long stretch of beach serves as a peaceful escape for surfers. Furthermore, this serene destination has just one market – called The Market. Even so, it is still a shopper’s paradise. While Sandbridge is a perfect destination for a peaceful vacation, summer can get super crowded. Remarkably, the good news is you can still find a perfect spot to escape the crowd. Unlike the resort strip, a key  point to note that there are no hotel accommodation in Sandbridge. On the contrary, many wonderful vacation rentals are available here.

 A secluded beach hideaway, Sandbridge is a peaceful and pleasant community where visitors can unwind and bask in relaxing moments. Regardless of its serenity, Sandbridge never fails to entertain and amaze visitors. For outdoor lovers, the open waters of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park offer many activities. These include fishing, hiking and kayaking.
