I grew up not far from Yorktown Beach. While Yorktown is rich in history and is beautiful, the beach is barely adequate. The water is murky and is a jellyfish haven for the majority of the summer. Despite the city's best efforts, litter has always been an issue. It is a decent spot to sunbathe but not for water play (in my opinion). Families are better off making the drive to VA Beach for the day.
This is a small, cozy, family oriented beach that kids and parents will love alike. They have Ben & Jerry's and a few hotel, they have a historic trolley ride which is enjoyable. They have a fish pier where you can go crabbing, and fishing. The beach was clean.
