We enjoy the Frisco beach for it's calmer waters and the water is warmer than up north in Kitty Hawk. The beach is never crowded and you can always find a good spot to relax or play in the water with kids. If you want seclusion, you can always find a spot on the beach. They have public showers and...

This is the best beach on Hatteras Island for swimming,especially for families with children.There is a ramp offering easy 4 wheel drive access.Can be good for fishing but I consider it more of a family beach.At certain tide levels there can be tidal pools which are great for the young kids.The beach has a gradual slope so the waves don't...

Unlike Hatteras beach Frisco beach is a lot calmer and has a ton of seashells for your kids or adults alike together. Hatteras beach seems to be filled with spiky burs that can be quite painful unless wearing water shoes. We enjoyed Frisco beach much more than any other beach. Great for little ones and teenagers and adults alike.

We enjoy the drive on beaches. No carrying chairs etc.. and dogs are welcome on leash. Just a relaxed atmosphere with nobody invading your space/view. Our favorite vacation spot.

My kids loved this beach. It wasn't overly crowded and you had space. It was clean and everyone had little families there.

While camping at Frisco woods, came the few miles down the road to the beach. Decent bathhouse, although wish had changing rooms, but does have showers to get off the sand. Short boardwalk to the beach. Some of the close beach was blocked off for turtle nests, bit plenty to use

Our family of six loves swimming here. The surf seems to break just right for our 8 year old to use his boogie board. Everyone else is very comfortable wading out and riding over the incoming waves. (For some reason, the water in Avon seems rougher.) Kite flying on this beach is also a lot of fun. There are bathroom... More

This was the tenth summer at Frisco Beach and as usual we had a enjoyable time. We rent a beach house and take our grandchildren with us. The is a great beach for families. The beach is clean and the surf is normally calm. The kids love to chase the ghost crabs at night and we also fish a little.
