Here on Chincoteague island, we experience all four seasons. Each is distinct and enjoyable in a different way. Maybe knowing a little more about what the seasons are like here on the island will help you decide when you would like to come visit Chincoteauge.
Chincoteague in the Spring
Spring tends to be a bit rainier than the other seasons, with the wettest month of the year being March, having about 4 inches of rain on average. However, rainfall is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year. April is a nice month to visit, especially if you are interested in wildlife viewing and birding on Assateague, because there are less mosquitoes out there during this cooler spring month. While the weather is significantly warming up by May, the island does not get busy with visitors until the summer months.
Chincoteague in the Summer
Chincoteague Island, VA climate is warm during the summer when temperatures tend to be in the 70’s. The warmest month of the year is July with an average maximum temperature of 84. During summer months, the nights stay warm and the tempature usually drops 16 degrees or less from day to night. Most people visit in the summer with July and August probably being the busiest months. The town is fully open, including our bed and breakfast, of course. The beaches are tempting and the water is warm enough for swimming. Even in the summer, the beaches never get very crowded since they are wide, spacious and provide ample parking.
Chincoteague in the Fall
Fall is the season for layering your clothes. It tends to be cooler in the mornings and evenings but warms up pleasantly during the day.
Chincoteague in the Winter
Its can be cold, but the snow geese are here during the winter months. If you catch it right, there are birds everywhere. Just dress warm and head around the wildlife loop with cameras.
We re-open for Valentines’ weekend and we would love to host you for a romantic stay on the island!
