Fodor's Review

Forty-one public beach access points make Nags Head the perfect place to hit the shore no matter your needs. Access points are marked with white signs clearly stating "Public beach access." Fifteen points are handicapped accessible, and beach wheelchairs are available at the Bonnett and Hargrove accesses. The Eighth Street access has a stability mat that makes getting a stroller or wheelchair on the beach easy. Many other areas have lifeguards and bathhouses. The town

lists all the accesses and provides a map of them on its website. No matter where you land, expect clean sand and water. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking, showers, toilets. Best for: sunrise, sunset, swimming.
