Amazing view point of Chesapeake Bay Bridge.. It give a feel of a beach. Beautiful place to go in summer with family and friends for a day out.. you can see lots of dear roaming here and there.. crossing roads,. Best Place for campaigning and barbecue near Annapolis. There are No Bins so you have to carry one. Large place for camping test.

I've been coming to Sandy point for 38 years and love this place. It's such an iconic beach, I love the Chesapeake Bay, I enjoy the scenery such as the breathtaking views of the water and wildlife, one can't help but admire the size, beauty and architecture of the Chesapeake Bay bridge. I love the fact that it's very close to home. Such a nice place to go relax on the beach or you can go for some fishing!

It's a good picturesque beach about an hour's drive from North VA or Washington DC. Very fine orangish sand and deep blue waters with the bay bridge in the background make it very good to view. Restrooms were closed , but portable toilets were there instead.maybe some maintenance. There is some entry fee. Summer time entry fee is steeper, so I assume it must be get ting crowded then.

I went to Sandy Point Park today, trying to use my senior pass to enter it. There was, however, no device for or any info about using senior pass. It is off season, I understand. Does it mean the senior pass is invalid in off season? Please clarify. Thanks.

Large state park bordering the Chesapeake Bay. Excellent for viewing waterfowl, eagles and ospreys. The surrounding woods and marshes provide habitat for many interesting birds. Stay away on crowded Summer weekends and holidays.
