The Eastern Shore of Virginia (ESVA) is a favorite destination for fishermen, hunters, and outdoor enthusiasts. It is also known for its seafood. Several Eastern Shore towns are located along the Chesapeake Bay. On the seaside, Chincoteague Island, Wachapreague, and other communities offer access to coastal bays, creeks, the Atlantic, and nearby areas where outdoorsmen can enjoy saltwater fishing, crabbing, clamming, waterfowl hunting, watching wildlife, and other recreation. Together, Delaware, the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and Eastern Shore of Virginia occupy the Delmarva Peninsula. The Eastern Shore of Virginia is connected to Hampton Roads Virginia via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.
