Our Virginia Beach beachfront Life Plan Community is known among retirement communities for its resort-like lifestyle and delicious chef-prepared dining. We’re also known for our gorgeous residences, a friendly atmosphere that families and visitors of all ages always enjoy, and a robust Wellness for Life program. Last but certainly not least, we’re known for our effective and progressive LifeCare program.

  • Enjoy the tranquil koi pond in the Meditation Garden.
  • Take in the gorgeous bay view from the Mermaid Garden.
  • Savor magnificent dining with a view of the bay.

All told, there’s plenty at Westminster-Canterbury to help you in your pursuit of physical fitness and brain fitness!
