Pungo Area Information


Located just south of Sandbridge is Pungo, a hidden jewel treasured by local residents.

The area derives its name from a local Indian tribe, the Machipungo, and named after the Indian Chief, Machiopungo. Like much of southern Virginia Beach, the area is surrounded by farmland, and home to many “Farm to Table” fruit and vegetable stands, pick-your-own fruit stands, cut-your-own Christmas Tree Farm, sprawling horse farms and a truly scenic country side. Pungo is home to the annual Strawberry Festival, held every Memorial Day weekend, and the Military Aviation Museum, which boasts a large collection of vintage war birds.
