“Stunning Beach”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Absolutely gorgeous and well maintained beach on Ocracoke. It was clean, the water was clear, and there were certain areas if you walk down just a ways that were secluded. The warm water made it possible to get in and have a little fun. I wish it hadn't rained so much while we were there because I would have loved to enjoy the beach more.

“warmest water around, very comfortable, nice waves for boogie boardng.”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

It took us about 3 hrs to get there from Kill devil hills, which includes a free 40min ferry that transported the cars. The wait for the ferry can be quite long. The beach was pretty awsome, plenty of room for everybody. Water was comfortable temperature. Husband was able to catch some nice waves, it was however too choppy for me. I enjoyed lounging on the beach instead.

“Beautiful Waves, Great Beach”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The waves here make boogie boarding and swimming a pleasure. Water temperatures are always great, and if you have little ones having the guards is important.

“Nice beach”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

A very nice area to visit. Lifegaurded area was large enough for the kids have fun. Very few people so there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out there 'stuff'. The water was warm, the waves gentle, and the beaches clean of everything . The sun was hot, hot, hot so be prepared!

“What a Beach!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

The beaches of Ocarcoke on the Atlantic side have got to be some of the best in the United States. Nice, sandy beaches. Miles and miles (13, to be more precise) so you can find an exclusive spot somewhere. Good wave action. Some lifeguarded areas - recommended for families.
