You need to buy a pass to drive on the beach and have a 4 wheel drive. So relaxing. Great fishing here also. Had a good time with family on the Frico Beach. Bring a bucket for shelling great shell finds here.

I have been North, Middle and South in the OBX. Frisco is by far my favorite. Great sand, fabulous shells, fun waves and most importantly NOT CROWDED! I also liked the fact that while we were there there were No 4x4 vehicles on our part...More

We were there about two years ago (not an option provided below, but we remember it quite well). The beach is very nice, and the water was noticeably warmer than it was north of Cape Hatteras. I guess the Labrador Current doesn't affect it. Nice...More

It's on your left just after Frisco Gun & Tackle Shop I believe which is attached to the Frisco Post Office. There may also be a sign for Billy Mitchell Airfield? Hope this helps.
