We did a Sunday morning and drive down to Frisco and then took the intro Dune Road from ramp 47 to the Point. I was in amazement, not a soul in sight with deer nibbling on their breakfast. Definitely bring your binoculars.

You need to buy a pass to drive on the beach and have a 4 wheel drive. So relaxing. Great fishing here also. Had a good time with family on the Frico Beach. Bring a bucket for shelling great shell finds here.

I have been North, Middle and South in the OBX. Frisco is by far my favorite. Great sand, fabulous shells, fun waves and most importantly NOT CROWDED! I also liked the fact that while we were there there were No 4x4 vehicles on our part...More

It's on your left just after Frisco Gun & Tackle Shop I believe which is attached to the Frisco Post Office. There may also be a sign for Billy Mitchell Airfield? Hope this helps.
