Just across the Chesapeake Bay from metropolitan Hampton Roads, Virginia's Eastern Shore forms the tip of the Delmarva Peninsula. Along the Shore's seaside margins, a chain of sandy barrier islands comprises the Virginia Coast Reserve - the longest expanse of coastal wilderness remaining on the East Coast. It's also one of the most critical migratory bird habitats on Earth. Vistors are welcome on several of these islands year-round, but please be aware of the regulations put in place by The Nature Conservancy to protect the thousands of birds that call these islands home.
