Chincoteague and Assateague Islands

Chincoteague Island, Virginia's only resort island, is one of the many and perhaps the most beautiful island that dots Virginia's Eastern Shore. World famous for its oyster beds and clam shoals, this picturesque island is the gateway to Assateague Island National Seashore. Adventure awaits everywhere as history and legend blend with the wild loveliness of the seasonal shore.

Known for its great abundance of migratory birds and wild horses, it is the perfect place to get away from it all. During the summer you can find crowded beaches or go for a little walk up the beach and find solitude. From Bird watching, surfing, swimming, fishing, crabbing or boating, the Chincoteague, Assateague area offers it all.

The serene fishing village, 7 miles long and 1.5 miles wide and abounding with history and natural charm, welcomes you to explore its unique island heritage. Assateague Island National Seashore  and the Chincoteague  National Wildlife Refuge offers miles of undeveloped beaches, marshes and forests stretching from Virginia to Maryland.
