A Virginia Beach getaway is perfect for sand sculpting, swimming, sunbathing, and basking in the eclectic Boardwalk culture. There are plenty of hotels that deliver the Virginia Beach Boardwalk vibe. Much of the city’s allure is in its stunning sunsets and breathtaking Atlantic Ocean views. If your ideal beach vacation includes savoring the dazzling sunsets with a glass of wine from your private balcony, check out these Virginia Beach hotels that deliver stunning sunset views.
Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront
This hotel is just a few blocks north of the Boardwalk; you can walk or take the complimentary shuttle to the action downtown. What sets the Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront apart is its 166 ocean-facing rooms with large private balconies – the most true ocean-view rooms in Virginia Beach. These full-facing oceanfront rooms offer unparalleled sunset views and a tranquil environment.
Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront
This hotel is right on the Boardwalk and adjacent to boisterous Neptune Park. While the standard guest rooms offer partial ocean views, the upgraded superior corner ocean view rooms have some of the best views in Virginia Beach. The white sand beach at the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront is spacious with comfortable lounges and private cabanas to enjoy a secluded sunset view. As an added bonus, the hotel’s rooftop Infinity pool has transparent walls for a one-of-a-kind sunset experience.
There are no bad views at this independent Boardwalk hotel. Every room in the Oceanfront Inn has a private balcony facing the Atlantic Ocean for amazing views of the sunset. Of course, if morning is your favorite time of day, take a mug of coffee outside and watch the sun come up—it’s equally impressive! If you’re up early, you may as well take a shoreline fishing tour and catch your own lunch.
Virginia Beach Resort Hotel
This unique all-suite property faces the Chesapeake Bay and all 295 suites feature large, private bay-view balconies. Sunsets are spectacular at the junction of the Atlantic and the Chesapeake; you won’t want to miss them. The Virginia Beach Resort Hotel also features a large stretch of tranquil private beach with umbrellas and sunning chairs, so you can watch the sun go down while relaxing in the surf and sand.
Oceanaire Resort Hotel
If boundless luxury is essential to your sunset experience, you’ll want to book at the Oceanaire. The one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites feature huge balconies with excellent views. There are four ocean-facing pools, two indoor and two outdoor, including a stunning Infinity pool, to enhance your sunset watching. Of course, the ultra luxurious 10th floor sun deck and lounge is a perfect place to sip your cocktail of choice and watch the blazing sun settle in for the night.
