Although Virginia Beach beckons to sunbathers and sandcastle-builders, the resort city is a wonderland for sports enthusiasts and those desiring more physical adventures. More than 18,600 acres of state parks and wildlife refuges, over 121 navigable miles of waterways and 35 miles of ocean and bay beaches give visitors a variety of landscapes for exploring the great outdoors and testing their skills.
A virtually undiscovered ecological treasure, Virginia Beach is home to one of the last great salt marsh habitats on the East Coast. The miles of waterways take the form of rivers, bays, lakes, marsh areas and fingers of water that all flow into the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay. One of the best ways to experience this jewel is by Kayak.
While a kayak trip may not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning your trip to Virginia Beach, it can become one of the most memorable. When you explore by kayak, you experience nature at its most pristine and undisturbed. With no engines, or props, to propel you, you slow down and take a step back in time. You become more connected with nature. The birds, fish, and other wildlife seem to relax a bit…allow you to get a little closer. Your mind relaxes too. The stress of your every day life can be instantly melted with the sight of a beautiful sunset, the intoxicating scent of fresh air, spending real quality time with your family, or the sounds of un-touched nature.
If you would like to try something new this vacation, there are a variety of outfitters in Virginia Beach that offer everything form guided tours to simple lessons and equipment rental. Look one of them up to plan the perfect escape for you and your family when you come to
