Fodor's Review

Just over the high-rise bridge from Morehead City, this beach is a family-friendly spot, enjoyed by couples and retirees, too. Free outdoor movies, movie festivals, playgrounds, and a park are featured on the town's Circle. A boardwalk fronts part of the clean, wide beach, where buoys mark lifeguard-protected swimming areas. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, toilets. Best for: surfing, swimming, windsurfing.
