A tiny spit in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, Tangier Island is accessible by boat or plane only. Islanders speak a dialect that dates to the Elizabethan era. Catch the ferry out of Onancock from Spring to Fall. Rent bicycles or golf carts to explore, play on the pristine wild beach and spend some time at the Tangier History Museum. Once you’ve built up an appetite, feast on fresh seafood at local eateries.
