Sunrises & Sunsets
Town of Colonial Beach’s breathtaking sunrises over the Potomac River and sunsets over Monroe Bay may be the most photographed subjects in all of CBVA.
CBVA is a designated bird sanctuary. Ospreys nest peacefully atop poles. Nearby Westmoreland State Park and Caledon State Park are known for their vast bald eagle populations. Ducks, swans, kingfishers, herons, terns and other waterfowl and waterbirds grace the Potomac River and Monroe Bay, while hawks and other species of landbirds soar the skies above.
With little light pollution, Colonial Beach, Virginia’s night sky shines bright like diamonds; and offers unobstructed viewing of celestial events, like full moons and NEOWISE Comet.
