Attractions on Virginia’s Eastern Shore

Whether you want to just relax on the beach or embrace the outdoors during your vacation, Cape Charles and the Eastern Shore is the place for you, as we have one of the loveliest beaches on the Shore. If you want more water activities, there is paddle-boarding, kite-surfing, jet skis, and boat trips around the shore islands. If that is not enough, the shore has some of the best fishing areas on the coast with many fishing contests throughout the year.

Rent a Kayak to explore the Chesapeake Bay, the creeks, and the barrier Islands. You can even do a kayaking wine tour, going up the bay to Chatham Vineyards; they do offer a “rescue wagon” for those that taste too much.

For those that like to hike, there are multiple trails in the Nature Conservancy land and the many wildlife refuges along the shore. There are wonderful bike trails, and great birding and horseback riding opportunities. If you don’t feel like walking, you can rent a golf cart and drive throughout town and the nearby golf course.

The Bay Creek Golf facility features two 18-hole Signature Courses that combine the extraordinary views and natural features of the Eastern Shore and the Chesapeake Bay with historical landmarks from Cape Charles. Bay Creek features signature Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus courses.
