Little Island Beach North

Virginia Beach, Virginia

This family-friendly park has many amenities and there is no shortage of things to do here. Once the site of a Coast Guard Station, the park now has a beach where visitors can swim (lifeguards are on duty during the summer), fish, canoe, or kayak. There are also basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts. Picnic shelters make it a great place for a picnic. There are also restrooms, showers, and foot rinses that you can use after taking a swim. Parking and pier admission fees apply. A beach wheelchair is available on a first come, first serve basis.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
