Humuhumu’s description

Vera's White Sands began in 1960 as a private club, White Sands Yacht Club, owned by Dr. Effrus Freeman and his wife, Vera, and opened on a small part of 800 acres of land they owned. As the years progressed and the area was developed, the once-private club was opened to the public, sometime in the '70s.
Vera's White Sands has varying seasonal hours, open more during the summer months, and slips are still available for rental. For many decades, the main attraction was Miss Vera herself (Dr. Freeman passed away in the '70s); the well-traveled woman added a touch of glamour and exotica to the proceedings, and played the perfect hostess to the guests. She passed away January 23, 2007, at the age of 93.
In 2006, Vera transferred ownership of Vera's White Sands to a new owner, who has removed many of the classic Polynesian Pop touches, in favor of a more Jimmy Buffet-flavored tropical scene; the changes have been poorly received in the tiki community.

Vera's Beach Club does have a white sand beach with a bar and bikini contests and bands in the summer. It is a nice destination on one of the prettiest waterways in the western Chesapeake if you are on a boat/jet ski. Their facebook page is ,a href="https://www.facebook.com/Veras-BeachClub-300322293322391/">here. if you go by land, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company is your preferred convenience.

Vera's White Sands is no more. After Vera's passing, but property was purchased and renamed Vera's Beach Club with most of the Tiki being removed from the interior. To see what it used to look like look at the photos linked in this article

I grew up very near this place, and remember seeing the billboard near the highway. It always sounded intriguing, but I never made it in.
