Things to do Near Chincoteague Vacation Homes

Make the most of your vacation at Chincoteague by enjoying the outdoors. The beaches are great for swimming, surfing or simply soaking up the sun. You can be part of the vibe at one of the crowded popular beaches, or you can visit one of the more remote stretches of sand and enjoy a more private beach picnic.

Follow the trails and enjoy a day out hiking or biking. Bikes can be hired from the shops on Maddox Avenue. You can pick up a map and do some independent exploring or you can join a guided tour and get the advantage of learning more about the island at the same time.
