Breaks is a small unincorporated community in Dickenson County, Virginia, United States. Breaks is located very close to the Kentucky border and is east of Breaks Interstate Park. Breaks gets its name in reference to the "break" in Pine Mountain, a mountain range that spans along the Kentucky-Virginia border and ends near the community of Breaks.

It was in Breaks that U.S. Senator George Allen called S. R. Sidarth, a volunteer for the Jim Webb campaign and an Indian American, a macaca. This started a controversy that gained national attention.
