Buckroe is a nice beach in the Chesapeake Bay. The water is fairly calm and the park is somewhat maintained. Overall a good park but be prepared for less than clean bathrooms and changing facilities. This is more due to those using the park than...More

So Hampton is across the water from Norfolk, and some may say it's a little country compared to the Southside of Hampton Roads (Hampton is on the Peninsula). But don't let that stop you from checking out Buckroe beach. Anytime I've ever been there it...More

Beach was crowded which wasn’t a big deal but the amount of grabage strewn all over was a real bummer. Food packaging, dirty diapers, cigarette butts, you name it. We’re from Florida and I’ve never seen a beach this trashed! There is a large playground,...More

I found this beach kind of by accident. We stayed in the area to visit the Historic sites and Virginia beach. I'm glad I did. There is free and ample parking, changing rooms, bathrooms and showers nearby, a few vendors and the beach was nice...More

This beach has some unique history. Read about it before you go so you know what too look for. It does cost to go out on the pier.

First of all, this is not a beach destination or comparable to the world famous beaches. However, this is a long span of sand good for run, jog, picnic, or just a sun bath. I usually go there in a leisure mood just to enjoy...More

I jog here regularly and swim weather permitting. It's not a huge beach, but it's pretty here and you can see some amazing sunrises. Near the fishing pier. There is usually a concession stand open in the summertime. New modern bathroom/changing facility is available.
