Sunrises are MAGNIFICENT at the Beach!


To see the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean and set over the Chesapeake Bay is quite the experience. You can do both in one day here. This is because we experience a relatively late sunrise and early sunset. As a result, this is unique opportunity. Take in the colors of a sunrise from a chair on the beach and consider an exursion on a kayak trip along the Chesapeake Bay to witness the sunset. It's one of the BEST free things we can ALL enjoy at the beach.
