Photograph Yorktown Beach

Yorktown Beach - Search Nearby - Added by Elyse Clark

This is the perfect place to go for a swim, then stick around to watch the sunset. 

With the George P. Coleman bridge spanning the width of the York River, a fishing pier, and numerous rock jetties, Yorktown Beach is a great location for photographing sunrises or sunsets. There is a nice brick riverwalk path to walk along, or sandy areas to sit.

To get the full Coleman Bridge in your photo, head out to the edge of the fishing pier and use a wide angle lens and slow shutter speed to capture some nice long exposures of the bridge and water. 

Once finished photographing, stop by the Water Street Grille for some delicious seafood.

Beautiful!

Everything there is picture perfect- got many great pics and memories there!

Visit the park too!

Great place to photograph. If you go when the weather's a bit colder and the sunbathers are gone, you'll basically have the beach to yourself. While you're there, don't miss the chance to check out the Yorktown National Battlefield and the historic village just above the beach.
