Located mid-way along Virginia's Eastern Shore, Parramore Island is the state's largest natural area preserve. More than seven and a half miles long, the island is one of 14 uninhabited Atlantic barrier islands that are part of The Nature Conservancy's Virginia Coast Reserve. The island features a high-energy beach and dune system, a globally rare maritime scrub community, and expansive salt marshes.
Parramore Island can only be reached by boat. Access is restricted to educational or research purposes and only by arrangement with The Nature Conservancy.
