Coordinates: 37°55′10″N 75°42′9″W / 37.91944°N 75.70250°W / 37.91944; -75.70250 Saxis Wildlife Management Area is a protected area located in Accomack County, Virginia. Predominantly tidal marshland, 5,574 acres (22.56 km2) in total, it is divided into two tracts. Both are peninsulas, bordering on brackish waters such as Beasley Bay, Pocomoke Sound, and Messongo Creek. Several smaller freshwater creeks also may be found throughout the property. Portions of the area farthest inland are occupied by hummocks. The property is maintained mostly in its natural state, with little in the way of human management or development.
