In Virginia Beach, Westminster-Canterbury Is The Retirement Port Of Call.

In Virginia Beach, Westminster-Canterbury Is The Retirement Port Of Call.

A haven, a harbor, a place to unwind.

Studies show how living near the water can enhance your life.1 Now that option is yours. Our retirement community in Virginia Beach is on the Chesapeake Bay, where the sound of the waves, the kiss of the breeze, the song of the seabirds, and the feel of the sand on your toes represent the panorama of daily life. Right outside your door!

Not only is our retirement community located on the prime beachfront real estate of the Chesapeake Bay, so you're only steps away from the beach, you're also connected to miles more shoreline to explore just minutes away at the Virginia Beach oceanfront. National Geographic called the nearby Virginia Beach boardwalk one of the 10 best in the country. So grab a magazine and come relax. Watch majestic vessels at sea and get instant access to ship information using Marine Traffic maps. Or dive right into a game of bocce or croquet. Like everything else at Westminster-Canterbury, it’s entirely up to you.

And if National Geographic isn’t enough, listen to the testimonials of some of our residents.  

Call us today at 800-753-2918, or schedule a visit.
