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.

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.

Great beach for fishing, ghost crabbing and boogie boarding! Took our grandsons here for the week. Enjoyed the beach as well as the Sound-side for Kayaking and Paddle Boarding! Not crowded and very nice area. The Beach has a shower and a restroom area.

Just past Buxton, Frisco is a great place! More excellent Outer Banks beaches can be found here. Then take a ferry ride!

This is one of the best beaches in the OBX. Shells are plentiful--you can observe coquinas or collect olives and scallops. The water is warm. The sand in the tide zone is firm enough for strolling. There's parking, showers, restrooms, and a wooden walk-over. Fantastic day.
