This is a great beach for picnics any time of year except for one day- the Virginia air show. The beach lies adjacent to our small aircraft airport, so it is a great beach to watch the air-show from! On any other day of the year it is a lovely tranquil beach with dune access- so having your picnic on the dunes protects you from the afternoon winds and gives you a bit of privacy from other beach goers. This is not a swimming beach so it won’t be over crowded, however there are people around as it has great surf for kite surfers! This is a public space so there are no entrance fees- just parking and perhaps paying the car guard!
