beautiful area.

Great place for sunrise. For a nice walk. Pier is pretty much dilapidated due to hurricanes. I was there in the winter so didn't see anyone.

There really wasn't much not to like about Frisco beach! Its got the OBX feel just like all the other beaches down here. And you can drive on it, with a permit of course! Have Fun! Hal G.

Ramp 49 is a great place to take your 4wheel drive vehicle. The beach is gently sloping, and a fun place for playing in the waves. Best beach to go with children to enjoy the ocean. If no 4wheel drive, park at Frisco Pier (no longer usable for fishing).

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.

This part of the OBX is normally calmer so that you can swim in the surf. this past weekend the tide was very rough due to full moons and storms. I loved sitting on the beach relaxing while my husband tried his hand at fishing.

We had read articles that the pier was scheduled to be torn down last year. So we were slightly unsure if it would still be standing. Sure enough it was there and we enjoyed a beautiful sunrise with the early morning fishermen. Free parking too!

I enjoyed that place because there was other surfers and I felt safer than to go by myself somewhere around. It is however a crowded beach.

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

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
