Chincoteague Waves Magazine is the go-to guide for visitors to Chincoteague Island.

Chincoteague Island, from the Native American name meaning “Beautiful land across the water.” Voted in the top ten beach towns in America, Chincoteague Island is Virginia’s only resort island. Seven miles long, three wide at its widest point, this is a unique travel destination you won’t ever forget.

Local folks have never looked at visitors and considered them tourists, rather guests they simply haven’t met yet. The welcome mat is out, the lights are on and the town is ready.
