It was a great beach to visit, lots of families and groups. North Carolina has pretty beaches. No complaints about the area.

You must have 4 wheel drive to drive on this beach. They offer beautiful overnight on beach camping. There are porta potty toilets available for use. Great family memories as all can unplug and just spend time together.
