“Best beach on the OBX for lounging”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Such a beautiful place. We were alone with the exception of a few people on horseback in the distance. Water is warmer on the SE facing beaches below Hatteras. Angle of the waves make less ideal than the east facing beaches for body surfing in most weather conditions, but if I had kids with me, this is the perfect place for frisbee, catch, walks, and privacy, with the added bonus that you can drive on the beach with a permit and not have to deal with all that schlepping.

“Beautiful clean sand”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The waves and wind were a bit rough here, but the beach was gorgeous and clean. It was very quiet and we didn't encounter very many other people, but the ones we did were all very friendly. We saw some surfing and body boarding, a lot of kiteboarding. Our group swam, built sandcastles and flew kites. We also had a bonfire after dark.

“Nice vacation”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Enjoyed a week at Frisco Beach. It was late in the year and the beach was fairly empty. Nice to have an open space. Water was very warm.

“Gorgeous Beach!! Amazing family time!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We came in September, so the beach wasn't overly crowded. Stayed near the pier which is a major safety hazard. We like it when we have the beach to ourselves, but still are within walking or short driving distance to great restaurants. Our beach house was amazing. The ocean water was a little cold, so we really enjoyed the pool and hot tub. There are lots of historic things to do including the Hatteras Light House. Be prepared as there aren't many grocery stores around. The public bath house was kept very clean. There are a tons of people enjoying water activities including kite surfing, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc. Frisco is great if you are looking for peace and quiet without all of the fuss.
