New Point, Virginia: Natural Beauty on the Chesapeake Bay
Jutting out into the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, New Point has a diverse landscape made up of rock-strewn beaches and sand dunes sprinkled with creeping brush. The best place to explore the natural setting is at nearby Bethel Beach Natural Area Preserve, where you can spot several types of waterfowl amid more than 80 acres of salt marshes and beachfront. In addition to providing postcard-worthy views, the area’s beaches are popular places for water recreation. Head to nearby Williams Wharf Landing to cast out for fish, rent a kayak, or watch live music on a floating stage at this former steamship dock. Stroll farther along the beach to delve into the area’s history at New Point Comfort Lighthouse. The sandstone structure—commissioned by Thomas Jefferson in the early 19th century—stands more than 60 feet tall.
