Explore First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach

Outdoor Recreation, Relaxation, and Education at One Scenic Site

Set amid the very land settled by English colonists in 1607, First Landing State Park provides a lovely natural landscape for outdoor recreation in Virginia Beach. Most popular for hiking, swimming, boating, hunting, fishing and more, First Landing State Park is much more than a typical Virginia Beach park.

Imbued with history, the park provides a host of unique recreational and educational activities, where guests can explore a maritime forest, lagoons, bald cypress swamps, and rare flora and fauna. There are also a number of historical and educational exhibits available at the Chesapeake Bay Center located on the park grounds, all within a short distance of our oceanfront hotel on the northern end of Virginia Beach.

The park provides various guided and self-guided programs that cover beach walks, crabbing, nature hikes, junior rangers, and other environmental education programs.
