Chincoteague Island has a gorgeous waterfront where you can see fishing boats coming and going during the day and night. You'll also find beautiful recreational boats that are worth millions of dollars. I can see why millions of people flood to this area during their annual summer vacations.
Chincoteague is Virginia's only beach resort island. You'll find plenty of things to see & do while you're here. You can rent bicycles and go bike riding, walk the beach & waterfront, go fishing, boating, water skiing, jet skiing, sunbathe, play miniature golf, kite flying, go shopping, crabbing, clamming and all kinds of other things.
Assateague is the home of Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and is a barrier island that lies east of Chincoteague. The entire island is a wildlife sanctuary and is protected from development. The entire length of the island is approximately 38 miles long. The northern portion of this beautiful island is in the state of Maryland with the southern portion being in the state of Virginia.
We recently spent 5 days and 4 nights visiting the area and I wanted to share some photographs with all of you today. If you want to spend some time in one of the prettiest coastal areas on the east coast, these two islands are definitely the place you want to be. My photos are in no particular order.
