Sheltered waters in deep creeks just off the Chesapeake Bay, marinas to suit every boater, wonderful regattas, stunning sunsets over the rivers, the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park, shops, restaurants, horse farms, local tomatoes, corn and melons, a farmers' market, fresh blue crab and softshells, fishing charters, tennis, golf, swimming - Deltaville has it all, under its peaceful and private veneer. The town is in Middlesex County, at the eastern tip of Virginia's Middle Peninsula, where the mouth of the Rappahannock flows into Chesapeake Bay.
