Stretching along the Atlantic Ocean from Croatan to the South and up to the North end, the Resort Area is where the action is. Live music, street performers, outdoor cafes, hot dog and snow cone vendors, and our famous three-mile boardwalk perfect for rollerblading and jogging. Sunbathers come for the wide sandy beaches. Surfers come for the waves. And everyone comes for people-watching.
Lifeguards are on duty from mid-May to mid September 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. a week. Permanent restooms are adjacent to the boardwalk at 17th, 24th, and 30th Streets and are open all year.
