The holiday Season is perhaps the next best time of year to visit Chincoteague Island. The average air temperature in December is 50 degrees with sunny skies. Just imagine yourself, in a cozy warm sweater, listening to the laughing gulls while walking along the beach to the rhythm of the ocean waves gathering shells and driftwood for holiday ornaments.

It’s casual here, come as you are. We invite you to consider spending a pre-holiday weekend on Chincoteague, take in the sights and sounds, and relax. 

Enjoy a beautiful sunset at the dock; they are the prettiest you’ll see. When it disappears on the horizon, savor a bowl of clam chowder and warm bread, or feast on roast turkey and oyster stuffing. 


... Even a cool day

at the beach

beats a day at work!
