    Traffic in high season is not fun!

    Two lane road all the way!

    Corolla isn't the problem, it's getting to it. Traffic on high season (late June to late August) is very beachy-bothersome. One lane each direction, and one way on and off make it tough. To combat some of the traffic, they alternate days to leave your beach castle, some Saturday, some Sunday, so concider this when booking.

    Drive on the Beach, But No Parking

    Warning signs

    These signs are apparently for the 4WD vehicles that go on the beach. There is no charge for driving on the beach like there is in some other locations like Daytona Beach.

    We drove up to this point and then turned around because our Mercedes is NOT a 4WD. We took seriously the warning signs against driving farther without one.

    The closest sign says "State Maintenance Ends"

    The next one says: "No Parking Next to Dune Line or Ocean". I'm not sure what that means about where you can park.

    The last sign says: "No Parking for Next 1/2 Mile. Towing Enforced"

    No PWCs Allowed

    Sign on the beach access

    Although this sign warns that you cannot launch PWCs from the beach into the Atlantic, I can't find that there is any prohibition on PWCs except in the Hatteras National Seashore and at Oregon Inlet.

    I will have to do some more research on this.

    Getting stuck on the beach is easy.......be prepared. My sister was lucky there was a guy nearby with a winch on his suped up jeep.

    Sand.. sometimes even the lifeguards need help

    but they tried

    well, the sand on the beach is not the best place for driving, especially up the little hill, so the lifeguards got stuck. Better not to imagine that they had to rescue someone in the same time
