Fodor's Review

Tangier is a Virginia island in the Chesapeake Bay named by Captain John Smith. This largely unspoiled fishing village with quaint, narrow streets also happens to be the soft-shell-crab capital of the nation. There's a small airport here for private planes, and it also can be reached by the ship Chesapeake Breeze of Tangier Island & Chesapeake Cruises (ships also leave from Onacock, Virginia, and Crisfield, Maryland, on the Eastern Shore). The ship departs at 10 am and returns at 3:30 pm daily, cruising 1½ hours each way. The island has several restaurants serving lunch. From the intersection of highways 360 and 646, drive 1 mi; then turn left on Highway 656 (Buzzard's Point Road), which leads to the dock. Reservations are required.
