About Atlantic Shores

Living for today with a plan for tomorrow.

Atlantic Shores is a vibrant community located in Virginia Beach, Virginia offering award-winning cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere, endless activities, 24-hour security and on-site EMT staff, and a full continuum of wellness.

Strolling through our pet-friendly neighborhood you are drawn to the walking trails, lakes and meticulously landscaped lawns. And there is far more to us than beauty. We offer a full continuum of care so you never have to move again. If and when you require additional care, you have many choices: rehabilitative services, in-home care, assisted living, or skilled nursing – all right here.

Lifestyle Options

Atlantic Shores offers ownership in more ways than one.

The First Way

As a cooperative, Atlantic Shores is the region’s only retirement community that gives residents the freedom of equity ownership. We offer a suite of first rate services and amenities. Residents are the decision makers in the way the community is run as a result of this ownership. Our community is resident governed which we believe exemplifies true ownership.

The Second Way

More than gaining an ownership stake in the community, residents enjoy the benefits of home ownership, including the ability to sell or pass the home onto heirs. A variety of attached and detached one-story villas with two-car garages are available for purchase throughout the neighborhood. Also for sale are apartment homes of varying sizes and layouts in our apartment buildings within the independent living portions of Atlantic Shores. We believe ownership is key to maintaining an independent lifestyle, offering freedom and control.



Health Care

We take living well very seriously.

Atlantic Shores is known for excellence in service and care. In fact, we are the area’s only retirement community with an award-winning culinary program and a full time Medical Director.

EMT certified security staff members are scheduled to be on site 24/7/365. Helping you stay well, and fit, is a major goal at Atlantic Shores.

We offer a full range of wellness programs, including daily exercise, strength and conditioning classes taught by our three full-time Certified Personal Trainers.

Our exercise room and indoor heated swimming pool are open daily. A relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi is the perfect way to wrap up your workout. We also have full time nutritionists here to help you set, achieve and maintain your goals.

We understand there is more to wellness than staying physically fit. There are endless opportunities to get involved in clubs and organizations for any interest – gardening, writing, singing, woodworking, the visual arts, playing cards – the list goes on and on!

A full continuum of living and caring.

Should you need health care services, Atlantic Shores offers the comfort of a full continuum of on-site healthcare services. Though Atlantic Shores residents are first in line for these services, they are also available to non-residents when space allows.

The Wellness Clinic at Atlantic Shores is home to a full-time team of highly skilled and acclaimed healthcare professionals who can serve as your primary health care provider or as a resource for your health care needs.

Harbourway is our beautiful on-site assisted living facility, offering three levels of care: Assisted Living, Intensive Assisted Living and Memory Care. Choose from five floor plan options.

Seaside Health Center is our certified Medicare nursing center right here at Atlantic Shores. Seaside offers a full range of nursing services including Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy rehabilitative services, as well as short- and long-term care, and Hospice care.
