Welcome to Sandbridge Beach
A recreational wonderland, Sandbridge is intimately linked to its natural environment with Back Bay, Little Island Park, Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape Park offering truly unique and unspoiled adventure. With miles of clean sandy beaches, refreshing ocean air, and pristine blue waters, Sandbridge is the perfect destination to call home. It is ideal for a beach vacation, offering a place to relax and unwind. Our ocean and shorelines provide beaches for swimming, beach combing, and sunbathing…and a variety of water sports and boating activities. Fish off our pier, charter a vessel off the beach, surf in miles of uncrowded beach breaks. Sandbridge offers its residents a small town atmosphere, a slow relaxed lifestyle, with low density of development and large open spaces. Sandbridge is filled with everything anyone needs to enjoy a wonderful vacation or an idyllic residential living. … Either way, enjoy our piece of paradise!

Sand Replenishment Update
Below is a summary of the beach nourishment project for Sandbridge Beach:
“The Sandbridge Beach Replenishment project is complete as of June 30, 2020. The project was constructed by Great Lakes Dredge & Dock (GLDD) of Oak Brook, Illinois. GLDD placed 1.7 million cubic yards of sand along the five-mile beach. GLDD completely demobilized from Sandbridge Beach on July 10.
Mobilization for the project began on March 21, 2020 and sand placement operations began on April 9. GLDD conducted sand placement operations from the southern limit of Little Island Park to the property boundary between Sandbridge Beach and Dam Neck Naval Base. The beach work area was conducted in 1,000-ft sections. The 1,000-ft work areas included a 500-ft
long pre-construction section and a 500-ft long construction work area. The 1,000-ft work area was closed to the public for safety reasons. GLDD averaged over 30,000 cubic yards/day of sand placement on the beach.
The contract was administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District (USACE), in partnership with the City of Virginia Beach. GLDD was awarded the contract with a bid price of $20,300,000 all inclusive. The USACE Estimate for the project was $25,455,745. This is the fifth beach replenishment
project for Sandbridge Beach and is GLDD’s first contract to perform the beach replenishment in Sandbridge Beach.”
