Sandbridge Named One of the 10 Best Uncrowded Atlantic Beaches
Virginia Beach has several destinations to enjoy some quality relaxation by the water. Sandbridge Beach has always been known as a favorite to Virginia Beach locals, but visitors are catching on to all that Sandbridge has to offer. Sandbridge Beach was recently named on of USA Today’s 10 Best “Uncrowded Beaches on the Atlantic Ocean.”
The USA Today 10 Best is a ranking accumulated by online readers. Sandbridge Beach earned the votes thanks to the area’s peaceful beaches. Sandbridge is a one of Virginia Beach’s most quiet beach communities, lined with vacation homes. Sandbridge Beach sets itself apart from the other beaches in Virginia Beach as it allows families to spread out. The uncrowded, sandy beach offers plenty of room to lounge in the sun and splash in the waves.
Last year, Sandbridge placed sixth on USA Today’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards for “Best Beach in Virginia.”
