Sandbridge Beach
#1 of 26 Nature & Parks in Virginia Beach
And for those craving even more of the great outdoors, the marshes and open waters of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park make for great kayaking, hiking, and fishing
Located on a sandy peninsula, surrounded by private homes and located within a state park, this is one of the most beautiful, pristine beaches you will see on the eastern seaboard.

Neptune's Park
#6 of 26 Nature & Parks in Virginia Beach
the boardwalk itself, the park with a great array of music every different evening during the summer makes for good times and fun in the sun, which on a very humid day can take a lot out of a person.
Playing a game of golf, seeing the sand castles, watching the ocean waves, collecting sea shells, people watching, enjoying the small amusement park, riding the little bus to the boat rides.
