A view of Croatan Beach

Croatan Beach is an residential neighborhood in the independent city of Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA. It is located on the Atlantic Ocean south of Rudee Inlet and north of Camp Pendleton near the Virginia Beach oceanfront. It is situated in a prime location once planed as a religious and educational resort that was to be called Chautauqua-By-The-Sea. [1]

In addition to the mighty Atlantic, the community is on the shores of Lake Wesley and Lake Christine. There is a public parking lot with beach access on the south end of Croatan. The East Coast Surfing Championships have been held just north of Rudee Inlet for 40 years.[2][3]
