Welcome to Chincoteague Island As you cross the causeway to our

secluded little island, it’s easy to see why artists are drawn here. The vibrant colors and unique sounds of our neighboring wetlands escort you into our village and a quieter way of life. You will be charmed, sometimes amazed, by what you find here as you draw ever closer to nature’s bounty. Days of sun and fun lead to nights of quiet solitude on a vacation that’s close to home, yet miles away from ordinary.

For some, our island is a fun-filled family

recreation zone filled with sport fishing, nature cruises, sunbathing, mini golf, kayaking, hiking, biking and ice cream parlors. For others, we are a quaint town of charming shops, bed and breakfast inns, intriguing museums and nature preserve with world-famous Chincoteague ponies, miles of unspoiled Atlantic coastline and thousands of acres of wetlands filled with unusual wildflowers and rare species like the Bald Eagle and Delmarva Fox Squirrel.

W

e hope this guide serves as the stepping stone to you creating your own Chincoteague memories. The Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce & Certified Visitor Center looks forward to helping you plan your visit and sharing all our islands have to offer with you.

Natural Attractions

CHINCOTEAGUE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE The opportunities to reconnect with nature are truly endless. The 14,000 acre Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge with unspoiled beachfront, dunes, marsh and maritime forest serves as a stopover on the Atlantic Flyway for over 300 species of migratory birds who reside here at least part of the year. Other wildlife, some endangered or threatened species, also call the island home. The island’s most famous residents are the legendary Chincoteague Ponies. The Herbert H. Bateman Educational & Administrative Center lies at the heart of our wildlife education offering a variety of exhibits, displays, brochures, videos and events. From here, venture out to investigate the wild, wonderful side of nature on miles of hiking and biking trails.

HOW DID THE PONIES GET THERE? One legend has it that they swam ashore from shipwrecked Spanish Galleons such as the La Galga that ran ashore on Assateague Island in 1750 with Spanish Mustangs on board. Others believe their origins date back to the 17th century, when local farmers used Assateague Island as a natural corral for their animals. Whatever their origins, the wild ponies are very well adapted to their natural environment. The current herds are owned by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company and are allowed to graze on Assateague Island by a special permit from the US Fish & Wildlife Service. (See pages 28-29 for more information on the wild Chincoteague Ponies and the annual Pony Swim and Auction.)

VIEW OUR ABOUNDING BEAUTY FROM ABOVE Visit the 142-foot high Assateague Lighthouse year round and climb 175 steps to the top seasonally to discover the breathtaking views from high above the tree tops.


ASSATEAGUE ISLAND NATIONAL SEASHORE Assateague Island is such an impressive natural treasure and serves as the site to both the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague Island National Seashore. The seashore, which is managed by the National Park Service, remains a wide, pristine Atlantic coast beach. It is one of the few spots on the Atlantic seashore which has been preserved in its natural undeveloped state; even the parking lots are surfaced with clamshells! Surf fishing, swimming and sunbathing are the traditional family beach activities enjoyed here throughout the warm weather months. At times, dolphin pods frolic just beyond the surf. Mole and horseshoe crabs are a few of the island’s beach dwellers. Plan a visit to the Tom’s Cove Visitor Center featuring beachcombing exhibits, educational brochures, marine aquarium and touch tank. Discover the beauty of the seashore through seasonal Ranger Guided Programs and park activities.

OVER SAND VEHICLE USE (OSV) & HORSEBACK RIDING Assateague Island National Seashore now offers two OSV zones in Virginia which contain miles of unspoiled beaches. Permits may be purchased at the Tom’s Cove Visitor Center for these zones, as well as OSV zones located on the Maryland end of Assateague Island. Seasonal closures may be in effect due to nesting of endangered Piping Plovers. Horseback riding is permitted in the South OSV zone when it is open.

PETS ARE PROHIBITED - even in your vehicle - on both the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and Assateague Island VA National Seashore


Explore Chincoteague WATERFRONT PARKS

Enjoy fishing, crabbing, picnicking and other recreational opportunities at all three of the island’s waterfront parks. Robert N. Reed Downtown Waterfront Park, 4083 Main Street, located in the heart of downtown on the Chincoteague Channel offers a fishing pier and pavilion that serves as a venue for outdoor activities. Photo ops of our majestic sunsets, oversized LOVE chairs and rocket launches are a must. Marina facilities here include 10 transient boat slips. Call 757-894-1349 or 757-336-6519 to reserve slips.
