  1. There are no hotels at this beach, but houses and condos may be rented, and the area is a well-frequented tourist spot. One of the biggest attractions to Sandbridge is its relative remoteness and laid-back atmosphere when compared to the Virginia Beach oceanfront. Low speed, two-lane Sandbridge Road provides the only automobile access. Located at the south end of the beach is Little Island city park, which is the location of Sandbridge Pier. Other well-known features of the area are The Sandbridge Market at the north end, and the Sandbridge “S-Turns” about halfway down the beach where Sandfiddler and Sandpiper Roads make an S-turn. The S-Turns is a popular location for locals to “hang out” and surf as opposed to the market and park where tourists tend to populate the beach.
