"White Sand Harbour" ~ Cubitt Creek ~ Potomac River

White Sand Harbour lives up to it's name, boasting a 1,400 ± foot long white sand beach in a five acre park on the wind-tossed shores of the Potomac River. This 165-lot subdivision is situated in Northumberland County, Virginia and is bordered by Cubitt Creek on the West and the Potomac River on the North. It also encompasses 27-acre Lowe's Pond, that is slightly tidal with a strong fresh-water inflow, supporting an interesting mix of species including saltwater Blue Crabs and freshwater Large Mouth Bass. This very fine beach now has a series of new off-shore breakwaters for protection. There is a picnic area and a tether ball court on the beach. This long, sand spit lies between Lowe's Pond and the River and continues down to a meandering channel that leads into Cubitt Creek, which makes a friendly place for young toddlers to splash around in the gentler waters of the inlet.

There is a boat ramp for launching non-fossil-fuel boats into Lowe's pond on White Sand Harbor Drive. There is also a ramp for launching boats into saltwater Cubitt Creek, located on Cubitt Court. Cubitt Creek is a large tidal creek, 1.5 ± miles long, with a shallow sandbar at it's mouth into the Potomac River. You can boat within the creek, but do not have boating access to the Potomac River. There are several marinas nearby where you can keep a boat in a slip, or launch a trailered vessel into the Bay, if desired. This community also has two fenced tennis courts, and an RV campground with a brand new bath house. Property Owners Association fees are $140.00 a year for a house, and slightly less for an unimproved lot. The nearest grocery store is the Food Lion in Heathsville, where you can grab a gourmet meal at Hughlett's Tavern. There are also several restaurants in Burgess, and in nearby Reedville.

The beach offers endless views out the mouth of the Potomace and into the Bay.

This foot bridge crosses over Lowe's Pond for easy access to the beach.

The mouth of Cubitt Creek marks the end of the 5-acre park.

Looking upstream into Cubitt Creek from the beach, you can just see a boat beyond the tidal marsh. This creek is about 1.5 miles long.

The two Tennis Courts are fenced and gated.
