One of the best beaches on the coasts of North Carolina. It has soft golden sands and a shallow coast and greets Crystal Coast visitors at the western end of Bogue Banks, offering 12 miles of pristine shoreline and incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean and Bogue Inlet. The beachside area is well organized. It has a fishing pier and car parking area too. Parking is $5 for the first hour, otherwise $20 for anytime beyond. For fishing, you need a permit, but it is free to be an observer.

We went to the beach last weekend and it was so beautiful. Luckily, it was not too windy and wavy, as well as the water was nice and warm, thus we could swim all day.

We also flew our kite and visited the fishing pier with our fishing pole. We all enjoyed it.
