Fodor's Review

Forty-one public beach access points make Nags Head the perfect place to hit the shore, no matter what your needs may be. Access points are marked with white signs clearly stating "Public beach access," and 15 of them are suitable for wheelchairs; beach wheelchairs are available at the Bonnett and Hargrove accesses and the 8th 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 website lists all the accesses and provides a map. No matter where you land, expect clean sand and water. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking, showers, toilets. Best for: sunrise, sunset, swimming.
