Northern Beaches

Getting Here and Around

Most people drive to the northern beaches via U.S. 17, 64, and 264, which all link to the local U.S. 158 and Route 12. Some commercial and charter flights are available from nearby airports. Plan your time wisely, as heavy traffic can lead to long travel delays in summer. Marked paths and wide shoulders accommodate bikers and walkers along some main roads. Guided tours are available, too. Still, a car is essential for getting around on your own time.
