    Clams and coastal enjoyment in Chincoteague

    Smell the sizzling clam fritters and breath the fresh Atlantic airs as you enter your cozy Chincoteague vacation rental. This is the perfect setting for a family getaway on the seas, one of the only resort destinations on the Virginia coast, and a veritable medley of handsome beaches and reserves. Between wild pony safaris in the Chincoteague wetlands and jaunts to the frothing surf spots of Assateague Island across the bay, seafood buffets with the local folk and sunrise viewing from the dunes, it's likely you'll never want to leave.

    Getting in with the Chincoteague locals

    There are a couple of unmissable events dotting the calendar in Chincoteague. First up is the summertime Fireman Carnival, when local volunteers organize craft stalls and fairground rides. Then there's the Annual Pony Swim – the perfect chance to see Virginia's rare wild horses in the wetlands. Of course, boating trips, cycling, and long days of sunbathing on the sands are also top of the menu. And talking of menus, you might want to learn how to sizzle up the perfect clam fritter from a native before you leave – you'll miss them back at home…

    Chincoteague is ranches and sands

    No matter how much you're pining to get on the yellow sands and splash in the wild Atlantic waves, it's certainly worth making a detour to Beebe Ranch and the small Museum of Chincoteague Island before you head out. The first tells tales of the region's famous wild ponies, while the latter is the perfect intro to the seafaring past of the isles. Then you can head to the beaches, which run the whole length of the protected Assateague Island National Seashore – don't forget to get a snap of handsome Assateague Lighthouse along the way.

    Vacation breaks in Chincoteague

    Chincoteague didn't get its reputation for wholesome family pursuits and enjoyments by attracting groups of walkers in the wintertime. Instead, it helped reveal the wondrous beauty of Assateague's sands and the majestic wetland habitats of eastern Virginia by magnetizing folk during the high summer months and main vacationing periods, when the weather's warm and perfect for hitting the dunes. That means you'll be in good company if you go looking for Chincoteague vacation rentals during the popular times in June, July, and August.

    Between the Atlantic and Chincoteague Bay

    Chincoteague – like so many spots on this run of the Eastern Seaboard – benefits from the dual habitats of oceanside and lagoon. To the east of town is the elongated finger of a park known as the Assateague Island National Seashore, where maritime forests and creeks spill down to pony-peppered stretches of sand. To the west are where the salt marshes sprawl out, forming the untrodden Wallops Island National Wildlife Refuge; a mecca for migratory birds and ornithologists. Both areas are best reached by boat from your Chincoteague vacation rentals.
