Pick Your Place in the Sand

CBVA’s sandy beach, located on the shores of the Potomac River, is the second largest in Virginia.

Join the fun in the downtown Ferry Landing District, where visitors can stroll the Boardwalk, grab a bite at a waterfront restaurant or food truck, ride the swings on the playground, shop for souvenirs, cast a fishing line from the Municipal Pier or utilize the bathhouse facilities. Beach areas further north and south of the downtown offer a quieter, more secluded experience.
