Find the best place to stay — Sandbridge Beach

Slowing things down in the upper Outer Banks

Jutting into the Atlantic Ocean on a barrier island just south of popular Virginia Beach, the quiet coastal community of Sandbridge Beach is the epitome of laid-back ocean life. Perched at the northern end of the Outer Banks, there's no shortage of surf, sun, and sand for a relaxing vacation. The town takes pride in its somewhat remote location, making a Sandbridge Beach vacation rental the perfect place to disconnect from it all. Remote means anything but boring, though -- between the lighthouses, lively boardwalks, and local dining scene, there's plenty to keep you and your crew busy.

Let the crashing waves wash all your cares away

With five miles of dunes and sandy stretches at your disposal, you're sure to find the perfect spot to pull up your beach blanket and relax. Spend the day just watching the dolphins, working on your tan, and listening to the waves (the sunrises are sublime), or try your hand at surfing. Get your adrenaline pumping at the Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium, where you have your pick of ziplining and forest canopy walks. Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park are perfect for kayaking, hiking, and fishing. Be sure to check out the wine and cultural festivals in town.

Just follow the lights to find the boardwalk fun

Completing the postcard-perfect landscape, Virginia Beach is home to the Cape Henry Lighthouse, dating from 1792, with a newer one from 1881 right beside it. The real draw, though, is the bustling Virginia Beach Boardwalk, where you'll find street performers, concerts, and bike paths (say hi to the 34-foot King Neptune statue while you're there). Animal lovers will want to visit the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, while art buffs should hit the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. The Virginia Beach fishing pier is always a big draw, and the little ones will love a visit to Ocean Breeze Waterpark.

Out-of-this-world weather in the Outer Banks

Expect mild winters and hot summers at your Sandbridge Beach vacation rental. The coolest month of January sees highs in the low 50s and lows just above freezing. Snow happens on occasion, but it's rare. Summer is the main event and what keeps the beachgoers coming back for more. The lows still hover in the 70s, while the highs are easily into the 80s from May to September, usually peaking in the 90s in July and August, when water temps are pleasantly in the 80s. The area can see hurricanes and Nor'easters, so check the forecast before you come.

It's a bridge, it's a sandy beach -- it's Sandbridge Beach!

Lining the coast of the Currituck Banks Peninsula at the top end of the famous Outer Banks, a Sandbridge Beach vacation rental puts you on 5 miles of pristine sands, with all the crashing waves and sunrises you could ever need. The barrier island is also home to forest, ponds, and freshwater marshes that welcome flocks of migrating water birds each year. Rolling sand dunes and waving patches of sea oats round out the picture, so be sure to bring that camera for the perfect Instagram capture.
