It was a safe and successful July 4. Thanks to all for patience in fireworks traffic and allowing pedestrians to exit first.
first turtle nest is expected to hatch in the next 5-10 days. Thanks to
all volunteers assisting with nest sitting. Select nests will have ORV
and pedestrian corridors in front of nests to allow for beach access,
if there is no alternative. The areas will be signed with yellow and
black arrows pointing toward the open corridor. Pedestrians may walk in
front of all nests.
If you are planning to visit the new sandbar
off the tip of Cape Point, please be safe and mindful of currents and
tides. Multiple rescues have been made in the area. We recommend
traveling via kayaks or paddleboards.
There has been an increase
in beach fires not being extinguished completely and made outside of
designated beach fire areas. Reminder that from May 1-Nov 15, beach
fires are allowed from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on the ocean beaches in
front of the Villages of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco,
