Buckroe Beach & Park

About the Park

Buckroe Beach Lifeguard standBuckroe Beach and Park borders the magnificent Chesapeake Bay with three-quarters of a mile of clean beach. Lifeguards are on duty Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Available for rent are three picnic shelters with nine tables and 1 grill each; an observation pier with a shelter; and a stage pavilion for community events, private events and entertainment. A spacious nautical-themed playground will entertain the children. There are large restroom facilities with outdoor showers next to the playground and ample open space year round. Note: No electricity or water is available at the shelters.

No dogs or other pets are allowed on the boardwalk, on the beach, or in the park area on the bay side of First Street from May 15 to Sept 15. Park rangers are on duty year-round.


Buckroe Beach offers a number of amenities during the summer season, including food vendors with cold and hot treats, beach chair, umbrella, and lounger rentals, sand-ready mobility chairs, foot-wash stations, bike repair stations, picnic shelter rentals, towels and swimwear sales, and a large comfort station/restroom facility with outdoor showers. Advance reservation may be required for some rentals. See details here. There are no water sports rentals at this time (jet skis, kayaks, etc.), but plans are underway to add these and more amenities in the future.  Stay tuned!
