Things To Do
Sandbridge serves up an ocean of activities – a true water lover’s paradise! You can surf, standup paddle, canoe or kayak, bike, hike and fish! Head for the ocean for hours of wave riding and endless fun! And with so many miles of waterways to explore and wildlife to see, Back Bay is a fantastic location for the kayaker and nature enthusiast! Try something new and learn how to Stand Up Paddle, one of the fastest growing sports in our area! You can rent a board locally, take a lesson, and spend your time rolling on the waves in the ocean or the flatwater of the bay. Several local companies offer SUP Tours, where you can paddle out to get up close with the dolphins, or enjoy a happy hour and evening sunset. Yoga enthusiast? Yoga on a stand up paddleboard will reinvigorate you and push you to become an even better yogi than you thought possible, all while enjoying the natural relaxation of floating on the water.
Hooked on fishing? Cast your line in the surf or off Little Island Park's fishing pier, open 5:30 am - 11 pm daily. If you prefer calmer waters, head for Back Bay, a large body of water just west of the Sandbridge Beach shoreline. Fishermen will find a variety of fish including crappie, bream, bluegill, cat fish, largemouth bass, flounder and white perch. Whether you fly fish or baitcast, your chances of landing a fish are good! For fishing license purchase, fishing rules and regulations please visit Virginia Fish & Wildlife.
