“Beautiful & Clean Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is the most beautiful beach I've ever been to. The sand is clean, white and like powder. There were very few people there at the end of April when we visited. The beach sand looks like someone came around in the morning and sifted it to get any impurities out.

“Nice and Quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Loved the location and serenity of this unpopulated beach. It's very family oriented, not a ton of noise or music in general. Would definitely visit again.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

I have been to many beaches, I even married my husband on the Outer Banks. Crystal Beach is the most amazing place! The sand literally squeaks when you walk it is so clean! And the water!!!! It is turquoise and relatively calm, compared to the Atlantic on a good day it's super calm. You can see your feet as far as you can go! The water temp right now is perfect and as much as I love to lay out I don't even want to leave the water. There's no bugs no crabs no jellys I'm amazed by this place and no other beach will be the same again! Last note, there are no shells anywhere at all not even ugly ones, so you don't need water shoes, there's nothing to hurt your feet!
