Park Features:

Love the beach, but not the traffic and hassle of going through the tunnel to get there? Discover Buckroe Beach! Our incredible ¾-mile beach offers a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean as you look across the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. Sink your toes into our clean sandy beach, enjoy our sparkling water and gentle surf, and watch ocean-going ships coming into port. The season kicks off on Memorial Day and runs through Labor Day. The beach is open daily 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with lifeguards on staff during those hours. A playground and picnic shelters for families & groups are available separate from the beach.  

For recreation on the water, Hampton Watersports rents jet skis, kayaks & paddleboards on the beach and now offers scheduled jet ski tours of historic sites and local sea life. Reserve water equipment or book a tour. They also offer hot food to go, cold beverages, ice cream, snacks and bags of ice. Picnic tables are available for customers. 

With free parking and a friendly staff, make Buckroe Beach a must-do visit this summer!
