Surrounded by water on three sides and home to a working inner harbor, residents of waterfront homes in Norfolk enjoy boating, fishing, canoeing, paddle boarding, along the Lafayette and Elizabeth River and the serenity of Lake Whitehurst and Pretty Lake. Owners living along the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay spend their free-time fishing, crabbing, collecting sea glass along the semi-private beaches of the majestic Chesapeake Bay. The Norfolk VA neighborhoods along the Elizabeth River include Downtown, Larchmont, and Lochhaven. The Lafayette River is home to West Belvedere, Talbot Park, Colony Point, Lakewood, Riverview, Algonquin Park, and more! The areas along the Chesapeake Bay include East Beach, East Ocean View, Bay Oaks, and Willoughby Beach. Each of these waterfront and bay front communities offer diverse architectural styles and neighborhood vibes.
