Cape Charles is known for its family-friendly beach, but there is so much more to do. Golf, horseback riding, fishing, sailing, kayaking, jet skiing, paddle boarding – the list goes on and on. Walk our historic town or rent a golf cart or bicycle to get around town to take in all there is to see and do.
