    Parking can be tricky but well worth it. Great beach, lots of shells and did not see any trash or cigarette butts on the beach (which is amazing).

    My daughters (8 and 11) and I had a great visit! We went in the later hours when it is discounted and to avoid some sun. Multiple water slides/ tubes. Clean. Space to drop your towels/ keys etc. Will definitely be back.

    Great beach location, although weather is tricky April & early May. However, the beach areas are not crowded and the water color is beautiful. Plenty of restaurants nearby, mostly family friendly. Easy access to grocery stores. Plenty of places within a hour drive to sightsee. Great location to just enjoy the the beach and relax.

    Pleasant, mostly easy walk in nature. Loved the natural brook running along side the path.
    We saw green anoles, gray squirrels, Carolina chickadees, fragile forktail damselflies, Prothonotary warbler, Palamedes swallowtail butterflies, leopard frog, painted turtles, and a black racer snake.
    Quaint, simple park with lots of natural beauty.
    And they did have decent & clean bathroom facility.

    Saw the sign and stopped in. We were greeted by the owners. The first thing you notice is the most beautiful paintings in gorgeous colors. The husband is the artist and his wife handles the business end. Well worth a visit.

    Highly recommend Isle Cycle . It’s the go to place for bike rentals on Emerald Isle. Exceptional customer service and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Cissy was very helpful in recommending cycling routes on the island. Isle Cycle went out of their way to ensure that my wife’s cycle experience was both fun and memorable. Even the owner was a great guy . :) You won’t go wrong in selecting Isle Cycle for all your cycling adventures on Emerald Isle. Thank you !!!

    My daughter played tennis there several times while on vacation. There are two courts both in good condition. You pay 2-3$ to rent for a hour. Fill out the book on the table and slip money on a box. There is also slides and swings for younger kids. Basketball court and bathroom facilities.

    We had a great time. My 16 yr old & 15 yr old niece had a blast. I didn’t think they would. It was worth the money & time well spent with them.
