what a great section of beach! Very clean, never seen it crowded! There are great dunes to tuck up under when it's a little windy. Will go there again, again and again.

We were told by the park ranger last year that the waves at Frisco beach were more gentle because of the curve in the Outer Banks. This year we rented a house in Frisco and found the waves to be much better for children than at Avon. The beach does not have the erosion found in Avon. The beaches are... More

Have been coming to HI for 23 years and fished from the pier while it was operational. Hurricanes of 2003 and 2010 have left it a wreck HOWEVER the pier itself provided not only shade for those who set up underneath it, but is instrumental in helping surfing conditions.

Recently had a beach day in Frisco and this was an excellent beach! The beach and water was clean and not too crowded. We parked in a parking lot area that had bathrooms, outdoor showers, and a clean water fountain for humans & dogs!
