Tangier Island, Virginia is home to a tiny island community of watermen and their families that for centuries was isolated from the outside world. The majority of its original settlers were from Southwest Island, and Tangier’s residents still speak a variation of their ancestral accent. Most of Tangier Island is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The only transportation to Tangier Island is by boat or by small airplane. When you arrive, plan to leisurely stroll around the island. Rental transportation in the form of bicycles and golf carts is available, when you arrive just ask a local for directions.
