loved this beach. so wide and not crowded like the north beaches. stopped and parked at the roadside beach facility. restrooms and showers were nice. clean beach. the water was warm and felt great. loved the old broken pier down the beach. made for some great photos. kids loved the waves with their boogie boards.. I really liked this beach.

This was a great beach! The way the waves had a double break pattern was super fun and felt a bit safer for our kids who were using Boogie and skim boards. Wide beach, so lots of space even in July to spread out. Water was so warm! Our family loved this beach.

Facing south, it has warmer water than the north (actually east)-facing beaches. You can drive on it (with a permit!) but there are no honky-tonks or anything of the sort to degrade the experience of the sun, sand and surf. Note: there are no lifeguards in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, so use appropriate caution.

Frisco beach is a beautiful beach in North Carolina. With many beaches in the area there isn't a huge crowd here and the cost is free! Many people bring umbrellas, tents, coolers, chairs, and make a lovely day out of it. My biggest advice is check the weather prior to coming. Storms can pop up in the area. Lovely place... More

Wonderful slice of the beach to drive, find a spot, and relax to the sound of the waves. The turtles had laid their eggs, so there were areas roped off. You couldn't get very close to the pier...it was still quite a long way off. Even during the week after the 4th of July, it wasn't over-crowded.

This is the picture of the beach we all see on the postcards. The beach had hardly any people a little but down from the residential area. The beach was absolutely beautiful. Didn't really find any treasures as some sites had mentioned. But it is a beautiful tranquil place.

Frisco beach is a beautiful little treasure tucked away on Hatteras Island. The turquoise water is just beautiful. You can go in to about chest deep and the water is mostly very gentle. Very quiet, probably mostly locals come here. There is a broken down pier that makes for some very nice pictures. Would be great if this could be... More

We have stayed many places up and down the Outer Banks, but Frisco beach is by far our favorite! You will love it!
