Baycliff Boat Ramp Spotlight

Baycliff is one of our favorite neighborhoods in Virginia Beach.  The streets are lined with established trees and the neighbors take great pride in the appearance of their homes.  The neighborhood features the Alanton Baycliff Pool Club which is home to the summer swim team the Bolts.  Whether you are a young family or empty-nesters, you will feel right at home in this amazing community. 

One of the often times overlooked features of this neighborhood is the fact that it has a boat ramp for the sole use of the Baycliff Civic League members.  At the entrance to the neighborhood there is a large parking area and a newly paved boat ramp.  This allows boat owners to keep their boats at their Baycliff home on a trailer and easily launch the boat to access Broad Bay in a matter of minutes and without the hassle and crowd at the public boat ramps.  From the Baycliff boat ramp the Chesapeake bay is a short 20-30 minutes (it would be much shorter if not for the no wake zones along the way).  The neighborhood of Baycliff also just finished dredging the channel that goes from the boat ramp to Broad Bay.  The word on the street was that it was being dredged to 4.5 feet at low tide.  This dredging allows for a good sized boat to travel in and out of Baycliff at any time of the day.  This dredging project was done in 2017 and was self financed by the Civic League keeping the City of Virginia Beach out of the process.  When the City gets involved, the project normally takes twice as long and it is paid for through a tax increase for homeowners benefiting from the dredging.  Since this was privately financed through donations from neighbors, the tax rate on the homes is unaffected.  Any new homeowners will get the benefit of the kind homeowners that contributed to the project.
