A few miles south of Chatham Vineyards stands Savage Neck Dunes Natural Area Preserve, a protected Virginia resource. The preserve is best known for sand dunes rising 50 feet high from Chesapeake Bay. The preserve safeguards a mile of wild shoreline abutting Chesapeake Bay where views will enhance your walk. Visitors accessing the preserve can trace a ¾-mile trail through the dunes to the beach, where you can enjoy walking the sandy shoreline.
