Atlantic Dunes Park in Boca Raton

The Atlantic Dunes Park is a popular, publicly-accessible beach located in the Outer Banks region of North Carolina. It is close to facilities like Rodanthe Pier and Avon Pier, which are known for their views of the ocean. The dunes are equipped with a variety of amenities including lifeguards, picnic areas, and restrooms.

This beach is an excellent location for several different recreational activities, including swimming and paddle boarding. The water is clear, the winds are usually gentle, and there is plenty of room for sunbathing.

The park has been host to countless major events over the years. One such event was the College Beach Music Festival in July 2014. This festival featured some of the biggest names in music including Kenny Chesney and Third Eye Blind. America’s largest celebration of college students graduating with a bachelor’s degree took place there in 2013, and it is also home to a wide variety of other great events too.

The beach in Atlantic Dunes Park provides a tranquil setting where visitors can unwind and relax. The expanse of its white sand, mirrored by the placid ocean, captures the essence of tranquility.

If you’re looking for an escape from the bustle of everyday life, head to the beach for some much-needed time to reflect or read your favorite novel. Grab all your essentials (blanket, picnic basket, water, sunscreen) and you’ll be set.

Visitors who come to this beach will find a lovely beach by sand dunes that are surrounded by green hills and the name says it all. If you wish to explore this portion of the beach, there are a couple of ways to do so. You may take a walk along the boardwalk or take in views from the observation deck that is just a short walk away.

Lifeguards patrol the gorgeous Atlantic Dunes Park beach during the 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. business hours, making sure everyone is safe and has an enjoyable time.

It is easy to see why this beach is a very popular destination for visitors who are looking for an alternative to the more tourist-oriented beaches in the area. The water is pristine, and there are no major attractions nearby that will end up crowding the beach.

With the parking available at this location, one might think that it will be hard to find a space at times. However, with the additional parking spaces situated right on the beach, you’ll be able to enjoy your time in the sun while still being close to your vehicle.

Atlantic Dunes boasts a 300-foot nature reserve located beside the boardwalk, as well as picnic table rental and pavilion rental. A variety of wildlife can be found in the reserve, including shorebirds, songbirds, and mammals such as white-tailed deer and raccoons.
