Get more Tips here! www.destinationtips.com Shark attacks seem to be on the rise in many parts of the world, therefore, you might want to steer clear of the following known shark-infested waters. Statistically, these are among the most dangerous beaches for deadly shark attacks. 1. Pernambuco, Brazil The shockingly high attack rate in these waters appears to be due to over-fishing. Without enough food supply, the sharks have begun to sample other forms of fare to satisfy their relentless hunger. 2. Second Beach, South Africa The beach is popular among shark-seeking tourists and cage divers. Tour operators dump boatloads of bloody chum in the water order to entice the great whites. You definitely don’t want to surf or swim anywhere near these boats and their chum lines. 3. New Smyrna Beach, Florida More than 238 shark attacks have been documented at Florida’s (surprisingly) popular New Smyrna Beach. In fact, 15% of worldwide shark bites have occurred here. Most of the bites are courtesy of baby bull sharks that favor these waters. To date, none of the recorded attacks here have been fatal. 4. Velzyland Beach, Hawaii About 41 different shark species that frequent Hawaii’s waters including aggressive specimens like bull sharks and great whites. The last fatal shark attack at this beach occurred in 1994 when a tiger shark attacked a surfer. More recent attacks on surfers have been reported, but none fatal. 5. New South Wales, Australia This region, which includes famous Bondi Beach, has recorded more than 170 unprovoked shark attacks and more than 50 fatal attacks, and great white shark encounters are more common here than in other parts of the world. Due to the position of the continental shelf, swimmers and surfers are in close proximity of deep waters where these potential predators cruise. 6. Fletcher Cove, California Fletcher Cove may be picturesque, but it is also the scene of 142 unprovoked shark attacks, including some recent fatalities. Scientists are convinced that the fish-strewn waters in this region are ideal feeding grounds for large predators like the great white. 7. Reunion Island, Indian Ocean This island has had more than 10 attacks in a recent two-year period, three being fatal. This has prompted island officials to close the beaches to swimmers and surfers. Experts aren’t sure why the sharks are biting people with greater frequency. 8. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Since 2005, there have been more than fifty attacks. In fact, researchers have claimed that South Carolina’s waters are just as dangerous as Florida’s when comparing the swimmer-to-attack ratio. Their waters are attractive to species like tiger sharks and bull sharks. 9. Coffin Bay, Australia The name says it all. Don’t swim here unless you fancy a meeting with a great white. Recently an abalone diver was attacked and killed by two great white sharks. His body was never recovered. 10. Surf Beach, California A nineteen-year-old surfer was attacked and killed a few years ago by a great white shark believed to be 18 feet in length. The waters here are home to seals, which attract great whites in large numbers.

It’s summer. Somewhere nearby, there’s a neighborhood park with a playground. Go play, kid! We’ve got you covered. Virginia Beach is a great place for families with children. With 188 neighborhood parks with playgrounds, that’s roughly one playground for every 160 kids under the age of 10. That’s a lot of fun to go around. Inevitably, playgrounds wear out. Simple problems — broken swings and busted slides — have simple fixes. But when a whole playground wears out, we replace it. The typical playground lasts 15 to 20 years. Every year, Virginia Beach renovates or replaces about seven or eight neighborhood playgrounds, at a cost of $400,000 a year. It’s a year-round job. A team of experts constantly surveys playgrounds to determine their conditions. They pick the ones that need the most help, then consult with neighbors before designing the features of each new playground. Finally, they hire a contractor to do the work. Over the past two years, Parks & Recreation has renovated or replaced 14 playgrounds at neighborhood parks in Bellamy Woods, Coventry, Holland Oaks, Lynnhaven, Middle Oaks Plantation, Ocean Lakes, Bayville, Princess Anne, Gatewood, Windsor Oaks West, Hunt Club Forest, Laurel Cove, Plaza Methodist and Pinewood Gardens. Crews recently completed work at the Bow Creek Neighborhood Park. Playgrounds slated for the rest of 2015 are at Stoneybrook, Buyrn Farms and Brigadoon. Stay up to speed on upcoming improvements by clicking here. Want a say in what’s in your neighborhood playground? The Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation Foundation makes it easy. The Parks Plus program gives you the tools to plan your project, raise funds for extra amenities not provided by the city, and see your improvements brought to life. Simply fill out the interest form to get the ball rolling. So wear out those swings, kid. We’ll make more. To locate a playground near you, download our free VB ParkFinder app or visit the Park Finder page online here.

San Francisco Tombstones It’s not unusual to find objects that have washed up on beaches, but residents of San Francisco were in for a surprise in 2012 when some particularly somber items started appearing. Local residents started finding tombstones in the sand of people that had died in the 1800’s. First there was one from 1876, then one from 1890, and they kept on showing up. While this may seem like a dark secret coming to light, the explanation for all of this was far more simple. The reason it had been happening was to do with construction works that had been done to help protect the beaches. The area had formerly been used as a graveyard, but the bodies had long been moved inland. The stones, on the other hand, proved too costly to be moved and were, instead, re-purposed. They were used as breakwaters, gutter liners and to construct a seawall, and it appears as if it is some of these had broken loose and washed up on the beach. 9. Severed Feet Since 2007 beaches and islands on the coast of British Columbia in Canada and Washington state in America have seen a particularly gruesome series of objects washing up on them- human feet that, in most cases, are still in their shoes. In total, 16 feet have been found. Disturbingly only two of these were left feet, which were matched with right feet that also washed up, meaning that the rest must have come from at least 14 different people. It’s completely unknown how these feet arrived on these beaches. Only four people have been identified as their owners, but there are plenty of suggestions of how such a thing might happen. The strange thing here is that only feet have been found, and no bodies. Some people suspect foul play by gangsters, others think they have come from the victims of a plane crash near the area in 2005, and some have suggested they may actually have come from victims of the Asian tsunami in 2004. All of them have been found within shoes that would provide enough buoyancy for them to be carried by currents across the ocean, so it is completely feasible. The true origin of the feet might be a bit closer to home, though. One of those that were found have been linked to a man, and two of the feet have been identified as being from a woman who jumped from the Pattullo Bridge in 2004. It’s quite possible, therefore, that these feet have all come from people who suffered similar fates in the surrounding area. 8. Ambergris As one of the grossest objects you could ever find on the beach, Ambergris is probably the one from this list that you’d most hope to find, because it turns out that this stuff is incredibly valuable. This substance is made when sperm whales eject an intestinal slurry into the ocean. From here it floats and bobs in the waves and, years later, washes up. You’d be forgiven for thinking this was an uninteresting object amongst the rocks, sand and shells that you normally find. It can be found in many forms such as large blocks, balls, egg shapes, jagged pieces or hard rolls, and has a unique smell that purportedly has notes of seaweed, farm animals and maybe a fecal note. Lumps that have been in the ocean for a long time, though, will have a sweeter, earthy scent to them. This smell, rarity, and the unique chemical properties that Ambergris has, is the reason behind its high value. It was, for a long time, a key ingredient for high-end perfume makers like Chanel and Lanvin because of its ability to fix the scent to human skin. While alternatives have been found in recent times, it is still a highly sought after substance--- a 1.1 Kilogram lump that was found in Wales in 2015 sold for £11,000 (around $13,400) at auction later that year.

There's a VERY cool statue called King Neptune. I'm on the boardwalk of Virginia Beach, Virginia. From my trip on June 28, 2009. The day I was there, it was very overcast and grey. Also featuring funky reggae music artists: Uwe Banton - "Love Reggae" Bob Marley - "Roots Rock Reggae" Natiruts Reggae Power 4 - "Naticongo" Virginia Beach has a beautiful big sandy beach but no waves. The 34-foot high cast bronze King Neptune statue stands between Neptune Park and the sea. With trident in hand, he is surrounded by the creatures of his realm. The statue was dedicated to the City of Virginia Beach on September 30, 2005 during the Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend. King Neptune, is an awesome sculpture all the way around. At Neptune's Park is the Hilton Hotel and the Virginia Beach Amphitheater which is a 20,000-capacity outdoor concert venue hosting 30-40 events each season. Up and down Atlantic Avenue are more restaurants and junk food joints than you could dream of. I seriously have never seen so many restaurants advertising breakfast and above all pancakes in my life. If you want to eat pizza, ice cream, pancakes, hamburgers, subs, and any other artery clogging food then Virginia Beach's Atlantic Avenue is the place to be. Oh yeah, and seafood buffets are advertised heavily but they aren't cheap and definitely not as good as the Bellagio Buffet in Las Vegas which really is the best buffet and best seafood buffet ever. The boardwalk is marked at every 1/2 mile and is a total of three miles long and 28 feet wide. There are two separate paved sections. One has a yellow center line for coming and going traffic of surries, bicycles, and rollerbladers. The other is a wide concrete walkway for pedestrians. The entire length of the boardwalk has a park life atmosphere with musical stages at four different streets, nautical sculptures, restaurants, vendors, bike rentals and hotels and condos overlooking the ocean. There is deep sea fishing, pier fishing at Rudee Inlet or Lynnhaven Inlet, surf fishing and inshore fishing that will please any angler. There are over 198 holes to golf in Virginia Beach either inland or overlooking the ocean. Check out Mount Trashmore a former landfill and now a kids park and skate park with ramps. Along the boardwalk is the Old Coast Guard Station museum and two Cape Henry Lighthouses are at Fort Story which is at the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay just north of the resort area. Explore the seashore to cypress birding trail. Kayak bays, rivers, lakes, marshes areas and fingers of water that all flow into the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay.

On December 20th I had some filler work done behind my 7 year old chest piece and as always, decided to document it for you. Spoiler alert: it does not tickle. Also it went partially into my armpit. Ouch. NB4 all the comments about my chest - my implants actually made divots on my ribcage in the soft tissue from six years of moving around in there, isn't that gross? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My 2nd Flight - Indoor Sky Diving experience. I struggled a little in the beginning. Into about 30 seconds, I started to get hang of it and it felt great. Bobby the Instructor at Ifly Virginia is good. Once he corrected what I was doing wrong, I realized what to do. As it got more comfortable, I was more relaxed which allowed me to do things on my own without Bobby's help. I had awesome time. I could not stop smiling the whole time. All the instructors are very good and they put on a great show at the end. They are extremely athletic. I am in awe of the acrobatics they do. In my view this is very safe adventure. Key is to relax as the instructor emphasized over and over again. Besides latter, for me the other important parts were: - paying attention to what instructor is trying to convey in the tube - feeling and appropriately adjusting body positions Those were key to my learning. I hope I can go soon next time. Unfortunately, there are no Ifly facilities close to me. I hope to visit again in the next year or two because I already bought return gift voucher :). Thanks for taking time to watch this video. If you have any suggestions or just like to comment please do so.

Here’s the story of my fish (Shark) of a lifetime by Kevin Brown The crew departed Lynnhaven Inlet of Virginia Beach, Friday September 15 aboard the “Big Crab” with a couple life long friends – Russell Gills and Adam Stange. Our game plan was to wreck -hop the morning in search of Amberjack with high hopes of ending the day at the Shark Hole. We found the Jacks!! By 11:00am and 13 stud Amberjacks later, the crew was worn out. They wrestled on as many Wreck Donkeys as they could handle up to 50 inches- catch and release. Arms sore! We arrived at the Shark Hole by noon, 43 miles south east of Virginia Beach on the S.E. Lumps in 65 feet of water. The tackle we were using was a 50 Penn International on a custom stand up rod with 60# main line to a 12 -foot 350# cable leader to a 16/0 circle hook. We used false albacore filets for bait. Our technique started with a frozen block of ground menhaden in a chum bag in the water. 20 minutes after the chum hit the water and before I could get my full spread out, Russell spotted a sea monster behind the boat and it didn’t take long to recognize the massive size and white belly of this huge shark, it was a GREAT WHITE! The shark was very curious of the boat and chum. He circled the boat carelessly about 10 times and smiled for the camera before showing interest in one of the baits. He finally took the bait and screamed off 100 yards before becoming unglued. Unfortunately the shark took a bad angle and the main line broke off on the boat. Bummer! To our biggest and best surprise of the day, the same shark came back to the boat 20 minutes later, continuing to circle and show interest in the chum. He must have been hungry! I fed him a whole albacore appetizer this time before setting him up with the bait and hook switch. The second time he took the bait it took a while before he even realized he was hooked and when he did – he took off! We chased him around and let him tow the boat around for the next few hours. I left my harness at home and without a fighting chair decided the smartest way to fight this fish was from the rod holder. When he finally decided he had enough he screamed up to the surface and did a huge 180 degree slash on top of the water, his tail whiplashing the main line and setting himself free. We never had intentions to land or bring this shark to the boat. We got all that we could handle and that was plenty enough to make a life lasting memory of this beautiful and magnificent animal. The bonus to the day was a 10lb Mahi that took a live spot behind the boat while fighting the shark on the other side! Unbelievable, surreal and truly blessed!

Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge - Virginia Beach, VA Get the Insider's Guide to the area here: http://amzn.to/2zxcMAn The following is from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website: "Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge was established on June 6, 1938 as a 4,589-acre refuge to provide feeding and resting habitat for migratory birds. It is a critical segment in the Atlantic Flyway. As the metropolitan area of Virginia Beach began to grow in the 1980's, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service pursued a land acquisition program to double the size of Back Bay NWR in order to protect the watershed from harmful development. Since 1988 the Refuge has grown to over 9,250 acres, protecting critical habitat for wildlife, which years ago had been zoned for residential and commercial use. The Friends of Back Bay was instrumental in gaining approval for the expansion and obtaining $24 million of funds from the Land and Water Conservation Fund to purchase land from willing sellers within the acquisition boundary. The expansion provided a buffer against development, thus reducing erosion and runoff of fertilizers and chemicals that pollute Back Bay. As a result water quality has improved, there has been a marked increase in the amount of submerged aquatic vegetation and the numbers of ducks, geese and other waterbirds have increased. Back Bay NWR includes a thin strip of barrier island coastline typical of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, as well as upland areas on the west bank of Back Bay. Habitats include beach, dunes, woodlands, agricultural fields, and emergent freshwater marshes. The majority of refuge marshes are on islands within the waters of Back Bay. Thousands of tundra swans, snow and Canada geese and a large variety of ducks visit the refuge during the fall/winter migration. Refuge waterfowl populations usually peak during December and January. The refuge also provides habitat for other wildlife, including such threatened and endangered species as the loggerhead sea turtle, piping plover and recently recovered species like the brown pelican and bald eagle. Back Bay NWR provides over eight miles of scenic trails, a visitor contact station, interpretive programming and, with advance scheduling, group educational opportunities. We are located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, immediately south of Sandbridge beach at the southern end of Sandpiper Road. Outdoor facilities are open daily dawn to dusk. The Visitor Contact Station hours are 8:00 A.M. - 4:00 P.M. Tuesday - Friday, 9:00 AM - 4:00 P.M. weekends. The Visitor Contact Station is closed on Sundays, Labor Day through Memorial Day and closed holidays, except Memorial Day, July 4 and Labor Day" https://www.fws.gov/refuge/Back_Bay/about.html We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

After being requested countless times and after well planned out trip, i finally traveled to Virginia beach to catch up to all the action at the beach. Compared to wildwood NJ, this monsters on the beach was a lot more crazy than i thought. Note: There is some parts in freestyle that i had to lower the volume due to really exposed music. shops http://www.zazzle.com/legofan506 https://shop.spreadshirt.com/1136264?...

False Cape is Virginia's most remote state park. It is located on a barrier spit in Virginia's outer banks south of Virginia Beach. The park is situated between the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge to the north and the state of North Carolina to the south. The park borders the Atlantic Ocean on the east, and the Back Bay to the west. The terrain is pretty flat, and elevations average around 10 feet or less above sea level. There are some sand dunes, however, that reach to 50+ feet above sea level. There is no public vehicle access to False Cape State Park. Getting there is a mini adventure itself. The only public access to the park is by hiking, biking, or boating in. One may enter from North Carolina, but that requires a 12 mile beach hike that can only be done at low tide. You may also boat in across the Back Bay, and there are several boat docks on the west side of the park. The most popular way to False Cape, and the way I went, is to hike (or bike) in from the north by passing through the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. There is no overnight parking at Back Bay, adding to the challenge of camping at False Cape. Please also note that, while pets are allowed in False Cape State Park, you cannot take them through the Back Bay. If you plan to visit False Cape with your dog, your only option is to boat in. The tidal schedule is critical to a visit to this area. Hike the beach only at low tide. While it is still passable at high tide, you would be forced up next to the dunes in deep, soft sand, making your progress slow and difficult. Many of the trails in the area are hard packed or gravel surface roads, perfect for biking. Many other trails though are difficult sandy surfaces. Plan your routes accordingly. False Cape State Park is not recommended for children or anyone with chronic or serious health conditions. I had no cell service at my campsite but a limited signal could be found in some areas. The Barbour Hill area (Visitor Center) is the ONLY source of drinking water anywhere in the park. Plan accordingly. In this first episode of the trip, I leave my vehicle in Sandbridge, Virginia, and hike through the Back Bay refuge to False Cape State Park. Of course I check out the sights along the way. I get to camp and get set up, and take a short night hike after dinner. On day 1, I logged 10 miles of hiking. This is a multi part series of videos, and they will be a little long, but jam packed with the awesome sights of some amazing coastal wilderness and some incredible solitude. At first glance, you might think that a "beach" adventure is highly unusual for Smell N Roses. You would be correct; however, the remote location and difficult access makes it right up my alley. I hope you enjoy the videos. Thanks for watching!

Did you know there is a local business that allows you to ride a horse on the beach? The Virginia Beach Oceanfront provides the setting as Virginia Beach Outer Banks Horseback offers anyone age 6 and up the chance to make a memory that will last. Hear about how they rescue horses, how therapeutic riding is, and how "a horse is something you connect to very strongly. It becomes your best friend. When you ride a horse down the beach you tend to live in the moment. You'll see that naturally all your fears and stresses, you forget that" states Chase Foster, Owner and Trainer.

The City of Virginia Beach, centrally located on the US east coast, is probably best known as a holiday resort. But the city is reaching out to Europe as a destination for businesses seeking to expand into the US. Last year $372m was invested into the city – but for Virginia Beach, attracting that amount of capital starts by attracting people. In the first half of our mini-documentary about the city, we interview Mayor Will Sessoms, Director of Economic Development Warren D Harris, and President of IMS Gear Virginia Gunter Weissenseel, about what makes Virginia Beach an attractive gateway to the US for European businesses. For a full transcript visit: https://www.europeanceo.com/videos/business-by-the-beach-why-virginia-beach-could-be-your-gateway-to-the-us For more European CEO videos go to https://www.europeanceo.com/videos/
