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

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".

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.
