Baylake Pines & Baylake Beach
Baylake Pines & Baylake Beach is an historic beach community in Virginia Beach located off Shore Drive and nestled along the Chesapeake Bay. This established neighborhood boasts mature pine trees, flowering dogwoods and azaleas, and live oaks galore. This community is the only single family neighborhood located on the water side of Shore Drive. This family oriented community consists of over 300 single family homes, most built in the 1950s and 60s including bayfront and lakefront locations. There are many newer homes that have been built on lots where the original home was removed. Lake Joyce is a fresh water lake located within the neighborhood that allows for power water vehicles (electric only), a rarity for lakes in the Virginia Beach area. A private beach access offers a maintained and monitored walkway with a bike rack and announcement board and leads to the extra wide beach on the Chesapeake Bay where you can enjoy calm waves and tides. The annual Baylake Pines picnic is one of the events enjoyed by all residents of the community.
The Bayside Recreation Center is located just a few minutes away from Baylake Pines and offers an amazing facility, programs and classes for the entire family!
