Life in East Beach revolves around the Chesapeake Bay. One of the greatest pleasures of living on the bay is simply strolling along the beach, enjoying the sand between your toes, the salty air, and the rhythmic lapping of the waves on the shore. The bay’s warm waters and gentle waves create an ideal playground for children and make swimming both pleasurable and safe. When not at the beach, you may find yourself relaxing by the pool at the Bay Front Club, grabbing a bite in Village Square, or listening to a concert at the Stage Pavilion. Come, discover the resort lifestyle East Beach has to offer.
