Visitors & Tourism


Town of Colonial Beach, VA (CBVA), is a year-round, family-friendly destination, only 65-70 miles from Washington, DC, or Richmond-a best kept coastal Virginia secret!

Located in the Northern Neck, on a peninsula bounded by the Potomac River and Monroe Bay, CBVA is home to Virginia's second largest sand beach. The last deepwater port heading south, the town has over a dozen marinas to serve boaters who arrive via the river or Chesapeake Bay, only 35 nautical miles away. There's also a public boat ramp, municipal fishing pier, and opportunities for watersport recreation, including swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing.

A range of lodging options are available, such as boutique inns, luxury bed and breakfasts, budget motels, campgrounds/RV parks, and fully equipped vacation rentals. Waterfront dining, gourmet meals, blue crabs, rockfish and oysters are just a few of the culinary specialties you'll find in Town of Colonial Beach. Not to mention tiki bars, wineries and craft breweries.

Special events are held all-year-round, and on weekends live music fills the air. Visitors can connect with nature and wildlife, learn regional history, shop for treasures, or enjoy a thriving art scene.
