Property description

On the Chesapeake Bay, Smith Beach is a small, private, bayfront, family-oriented community on Virginia's eastern shore. Only 10 miles from historic Cape Charles, home to the new signature Palmer & Nicklaus Golf Courses, Smith Beach is 'away from it all,' while still allowing easy access to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, Kiptopeke State Park's beaches & hiking trails + nature walks & bird-watching. Ours is a unique property with a bay view and a sandy beach. Kayaking is a favorite pastime along with fishing and all types of boating. Fine dining is available at the nearby Eastville Inn, or travel 30 miles north & visit historic Onancock with its old-timey movie theatre & live theatre, North St Playhouse. A bit further north, visit Chincoteague Island's famous ponies.

Peaceful, Private Sandy Beach: Perfect family beach for families with young children as water stays shallow for a good distance. Build your sand castles in peace and quiet listening to the lapping of gentle waves.
