Almost felt like I was going to a secret beach. The lot was half full but the beach was pretty packed- not as packed as VA beach (I heard). The bathrooms were clean, parking was only $5 and it was mostly families. A relaxing beautiful...More

We went to this beach because I read reviews about what a great beach it is. I couldn't agree more. It was awesome. Not crowded. Great waves. We loved it.

Parking is kinda hard to find. But if you want to forgo the usual crowded beach. This is the place to go for sure

Actually its awesome, best beach ever, just trying to keep it local. Everyone is super friendly and you can drive/drink/ cookout/ basically do whatever you want on this beach. Not too crowded and hopefully it will stay that way

This is the local beach that locals probably don't want tourists to know about. There is a shower area and bathrooms and parking is reasonable. Right now parking is $5 all day or $3 with Virginia Beach resident ID.

Not many people know about Croatan. It's in a neighborhood. If you go all the way down, they do have public parking. It offers very nice restroom and shower facilities.

A lot of parking at the South End makes visiting here easy. The beach has life guards in the summer.

My boys did a Surfing Camp at this beach. The beach was clean and there were plenty of lifeguards on duty. The downfall was that there were biting flies when the wind was blowing towards the ocean. I'm guessing it had something to do with...More
