This is East Beach – a waterfront community in Norfolk, Virginia designed and built in the tradition of Atlantic Coastal villages. Here, life returns to a simpler time. Beautifully crafted homes reflect the timeless architectural character of older traditional Tidewater Virginia homes. Neighbors greet one another as they sit on their front porches, or watch the sunset at a concert at the Bay Front Club.

Life in East Beach revolves around the Chesapeake Bay. One of the greatest pleasures of living on the bay is simply strolling along the beach, enjoying the sand between your toes, the salty air, and the rhythmic lapping of the waves on the shore. The bay’s warm waters and gentle waves create an ideal playground for children and make swimming both pleasurable and safe.

Jet-skis, windsurfers, kayaks, and small boats can be easily launched from the beach. From the deep-water marinas at Pretty Lake, larger boats have easy access to the bay and the world-class fishing found at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, with no bridges to limit the height of your mast.

East Beach. A simple life on the Chesapeake Bay.
