Barrier Islands

From the CBBT bridge, heading North...

There are 14 uninhabited Barrier Islands and multiple natural area preserves/wildlife management areas. 

According to the Barrier Islands Center, "along the seaside of Virginia's Eastern Shore are a chain of uninhabited barrier islands, stretching from Assateague Island at the Maryland border, to Fisherman's Island at the foot of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. These 23 shifting islands of sand, as well as a swath of marshland and lagoons, constitute one of the longest undeveloped stretches of shoreline on the East Coast."
