Sandbridge is the perfect hideaway from all the busyness of the Oceanfront District. It is the best destination for those in search of pristine sand dunes, calming sea breeze, and refreshing ocean water. Our welcoming community wants to show you the best parts of our home, so that you’ll love it just as much as we do!
Support Local Businesses
Sandbridge has been built around small businesses and values keeping business local!
The Sandbridge Seaside Market is a must stop on all visitors checklists. Not only does it have anything and everything a family would need on their trip, but it also has the world’s best donuts (okay we might be a little biased!). Made fresh every morning with a variety of flavors, they are a crowd favorite. Make sure to grab a box or two early, because they sell out fast!
The Baja is the local’s retreat. It is a place to come for delicious food, live music, and beautiful sunsets. Whether you’re are looking for the perfect place for a family dinner or to relax and grab drinks, the Baja is the place for you. Also, if you’re in need of the tasty wake-up call, head over with the sunrise and grab a cup of joe and breakfast burrito at Baja Coffee.
Bandidos is a little food truck tucked on Sandbridge road. This hidden gem is serving up delicious made to order tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and more. With great prices and outdoor seating, this is the best place to grabs a quick bite after a long beach day. There might be a little wait since it is extremely popular, but it is 100% worth the wait! Also, make sure to add churros to your next order!
Away from the hustle and bustle of the resort area
Located a short 30-minute drive south, Sandbridge is secluded from the bright light and craziness of the resort area. Follow down the scenic Sandbridge road and find our hidden slice of paradise. Sandbridge is special in that there are no hotels — there are only houses and condos available to rent.
This helps to keep beach traffic low and the atmosphere laid-back, which makes it the best place for families to play all day and night at the beach. From waking up early and combing the beach in the morning to using flashlights for catching sand crabs at night, Sandbridge Beach allows for all day fun. Also, don’t forget to grab some surfboards and kayaks from Moneysworth Rentals to make your beach day even more fun!
Get in touch with Nature
One unique feature about Sandbridge is that it is home to the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. This Refuge includes over eight miles of scenic trails, many camping areas, various wildlife, and a visitor’s center. All of which makes this the perfect place for photographers, adventures, and families to visit.
There are also many other opportunities to get your explorer on! The Blue Goose Tram runs throughout the year, offering a guided tour through the refuge and False Cape State Park to the historic Wash Woods site. Volunteer days, such as Clean the Bay Day (June) and National Public Lands Day (September) give visitors the opportunity to protect and maintain their national wildlife refuge. Fishing clinics are also offered at these volunteer events.
Just added this summer is the opportunity for kids to become Junior Rangers! Children ages 5 and up can pick up a Junior Refuge Ranger booklet filled with 19 fun activities all about nature here at Back Bay NWR. As you work through the book you can earn the title & badge of Junior Refuge Biologist, and if you complete the whole thing you become a Junior Refuge Manager!!
