All About Sandbridge Beach
Just south of Virginia’s Ocean District lies Sandbridge Beach, a secluded getaway featuring a vast five-mile stretch of immaculate white-sand coastline, pristine dunes, and tranquil shallow waters pleasant for swimming. It’s prime real estate from which to catch the sunset over the Atlantic, and provides a picturesque backdrop to a fun day building sandcastles, horseback riding, and wandering the shoreline. Nearby farmers’ markets, including one situated on Sandbridge Road, sell fresh local produce, homemade desserts, seafood, and offer a convenient spot to grab a bite for a picnic.
Sandbridge Beach and the surrounding area serve as a habitat for various wildlife, including dolphins and sea turtles. Birders will delight in the hundreds of species lurking in the sands and marshes of the Back Bay Wildlife Refuge. You can also visit False Cape State Park, situated between Back Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, with its many hiking and biking trails; the secluded park is reachable only by foot, bike, boat, or a tram that departs from the Back Bay Wildlife Refuge.
How do I get around Sandbridge Beach?
Norfolk International Airport (ORF) is a 45-minute car ride from Sandbridge Beach. Once you land, it would be wise to look into a car rental for getting around as public transportation to and around the area is limited. The beach itself has several lots open for parking, operated by the Parking Management Office. While most lots are open daily and are typically free, spaces can become limited. However, additional spaces are available via meter parking, and seasonal permits can be purchased online.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Sandbridge Beach?

Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge
Comprising ocean waters, maritime forests, soaring dunes, ponds, and marshes, the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge is a good introduction to the local ecosystems, and something of a wonderland for migratory birds.

The refuge encompasses 8,000 acres of trails for hiking and biking and includes a boardwalk that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, popular for observing turtles, dolphins, and whales.
Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art
Thirty minutes north of Sandbridge Beach is the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, featuring exhibitions (painting, photography, video) from regional and national artists. The museum hosts an array of events and programs throughout the year, providing opportunities to interact with artists, take classes, and engage in fun hands-on activities.
