Don't tell anyone. This is the best beach on the east coast. Not crowded, with soft sand and great access.

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. Rumor has it that the NPS had bought it and will... More

let all of your worries wash away with a delightful, calm and relaxing walk along Frisco beach. So breath taking. Make a trip down to the beach at night and cook some fresh " catch". Ride your bike to Cape Hatteras lighthouse, and go ahead, see the inside,and go up the stairs..capture a great panoramic view of the shoals...ahhh....

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!

Compared to Nags Head where we stayed last year (which was also beautiful and not heavily trafficked), this beach is one of the finest I've experienced. Gorgeous sand, shelling and surf. You can't beat it! Frisco very laid back and not tourist-laden like the northern OBX. We will be back!

Soft sand, nicely kept beach. Far from the crowds, which is what we wanted. Ocean water was so clear I could see to the bottom for the first ten feet out. Watch your step, however, as the ocean floor is very uneven. A lovely place to stay with stores and amenities nearby.

We have vacationed for many years in Frisco, and the beach is a great place to relax, get some sun, and enjoy the ocean. People respect one another, there is no blasting audio, no raucous partying, and it is thong-free zone. Since fireworks were banned (hooray!) the beaches have also been much cleaner.

Great sand. Clean beach. Not overly crowded. Waves were a little too big for small kids but good for body surfing. Surf fishing is done there but it can be difficult with the waves and people during the summer.

It takes awhile to get here but it was worth the drive! Not real crowded. Very pleasant. Afternoon rains cut our visit short but really enjoyed it. The showers/changing area were nothing special - pretty typical of beaches I've seen.
