Chincoteague Island Activities
Located in the heart of historic downtown Chincoteague, the Comfort Suites hotel offers the ideal way to enjoy all the nature, history, recreation and adventure of Chincoteague Island. What you won't find here are high rises, boardwalks or traffic jams. Chincoteague Island is a serene, yet fun-filled tourist destination. Come enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and natural beauty of Virginia's only resort island.
In town, there's great shopping, dining, galleries, boat rentals and fishing excursions. A visit to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague Island offers guests the opportunity to catch a glimpse of some of the 260 species of birds as well as the wild Chincoteague ponies. The Refuge offers a rare opportunity to see the wild ponies in their natural habitat. Additionally, miles of biking and walking trails wind through pine woods, marshes and freshwater ponds.
Built in 1833, the Assateague Lighthouse is a favorite attraction, as is the Assateague Island National Seashore, offering over 37 miles of unspoiled beachfront for swimming, surfing, kite flying, sun bathing, picnicking, shell collecting and surf fishing. Scenic Cruises through the Chincoteague and Assateague Channels provide opportunities for bird watching, pony watching, or just relaxing while watching the sun set over the islands.
