The Best Eastern Shore Beaches to Visit This Summer
The 70-acre property surrounding our Eastern Shore Bed and Breakfast is a true paradise. We offer a beautiful tree-lined property for you to meander and bountiful gardens to enjoy. You can lounge by our saltwater pool or walk the short “grassy promenade” down to the water, where you’ll welcome to borrow a kayak and paddle through the quiet waters of The Chesapeake Bay. As delightful as our slice of the Eastern Shore is, however, there are also plenty of great Eastern Shore beaches to visit.
Taking a day trip to one of the Eastern Shore beaches is a time-honored summer tradition around here, and there are plenty of great places to explore. Here are what we consider the five best Eastern Shore beaches to visit this summer:
If you don’t want to travel far, one of the closest Eastern Shore beaches worth visiting is Rock Hall Beach, also known locally as Ferry Park. The beach is right in the heart of Downtown Rock Hall, which means it’s an excellent add-on for those interesting in exploring the shops and galleries in Rock Hall. It’s also a great place to visit before ending your day with a waterfront dining at the many great Rock Hall MD restaurants.
Rock Hall Beach is one of the best Eastern Shore beaches from which to enjoy a magnificent sunset over The Chesapeake Bay. It also has picnic tables, barbecue stands, and pavilions to enjoy.
Betterton Beach, which is only 30 minutes from our Inn, is one of the largest and best Eastern Shore beaches. It’s free and open to the public, and given that it’s located at the convergence of 5 small rivers, it’s also jellyfish free! With 700 feet of public shoreline, the beach is huge, so you’ll have plenty of space to pick your own private piece of the sand for a fun summer day in the sun.
When you want to take a break from the beach, we recommend walking the steps to the top of the cliff. The view from there is gorgeous! Aside from a wide, sandy beach, visitors will also enjoy tree-covered benches, picnic tables, a volleyball net, a fishing jetty, a public landing and pier for boaters, and a bathhouse with restrooms, changing rooms, and showers.
Tolchester Beach is another popular choice for Eastern Shore beaches, and it’s between Betterton Beach and Rock Hall Beach. Unlike other Eastern Shore Beaches, Tolchester Beach is private and accessed through the Tolchester Marina.
The Marina is a very popular place for boaters, and the beach has become a treasured place for families visiting the Eastern Shore. There’s a popular beach bar here that offers a range of events and live music throughout the summer, and the crab and crabcakes are legendary. If you’re bringing a boat to the Eastern Shore, this place is worth checking out.
