July 14, 2012. Lifeguards closed the beach indefinitely, and sent thousands packing. Not only could beachgoers not swim, even walking on the beach was prohibited. Danger flags flew despite placid surf conditions. Weather was merely overcast. Weather updates and radar bore out intermittent patches of...More

Let’s face it this is a cement road for people that has very little function out of season. Must be a big party in season but out of season even the amusement park is closed and I have yet to see a board.More

There is a lot to do at Va beach. Tons of shops and places to eat. The locals are very helpful and friendly. The only downside to this beach is it not very quiet or private. It can be very messy at times.More

Virginia Beach is as beautiful as the people who live here. NEPTUNE is as big as it appears and is an amazing site.

There’s a lot to do here. So many restaurants, a beach, museums, etc. we went to Busch gardens 1 day (50 min drive) for the Halloween activities. The boardwalk is interesting & well designed. Definitely worth a visit!!

While I visited in the "off season" it was still nice and warm and I preferred less crowds. I could see there is tons for families to do in the seasonal months, as many shops and activities were closed for the season.

Our hotel overlooked the beach and we couldn't wait to experience it. A bit chilly in October but fun to walk and watch the action - ships, dolphin, and adventure seekers of all varieties.

I always enjoy this beach. It is clean, well groomed and the crowds spread out. The view from beach side hotels and condos is soothing.

several public bathrooms you can in a stall. also, hotels like holiday inn, Marriott, etc., have public restrooms in the lobby with access right off the boardwalk you could use.
