How to Find a Quiet Beach in Virginia. When people hear the phrase Virginia Beach, most think of the family-friendly vacation destination with its boardwalk and oceanfront water park, but not everyone wants a beach that is bustling with activity. If you want to find a quiet beach in Virginia, here are some suggestions for where to look.
If you are in the Virginia Beach area, you can find a quiet, semi-secluded beach by heading to the beach's North End. The northern area is more residential than commercial and built around private and rental homes rather than hotels.
If you don't want to head the North End, consider heading south to the Sandbridge beach areas.
If you want to get away from the main stretch of Virginia beaches, consider heading to the Assateague Island National Seashore, where you will be able to find a quiet stretch of beach, camp out and possibly see the island's wild horses.
Looking for a quiet beach that's good for families? Rather than an ocean beach, consider heading to Norfolk, VA and the Ocean View beaches along the Chesapeake Bay. Because there are over 7 miles of beaches, it should not be difficult to find a quiet area of the beach.
Looking for a quiet beach elsewhere in Virginia? Consider any of the river beaches. There are public beaches along the Potomac as well as along the Rappahannock River.
