At the Beach

Kure Beach has numerous public beach accesses where you can park your vehicle or bike, a lengthy boardwalk with terrific views of the beach and ocean, and lots of amenities including great weather and those Carolina-blue skies most days. Soak in the sun while listening to the soothing sounds of the surf.

Your visit will be more enjoyable if you pay attention and abide by Town regulations. These are clearly posted on signs at our beach accesses and throughout our town and are there to ensure that everyone is safe and has an enjoyable day.

Lifeguards are on duty from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, and swimming condition flags are posted at each lifeguard station for the safety and protection of our residents and visitors. Click on Ocean Safety on the left for flag and rip tide information.

Garbage and recycling carts are located at each beach access. Please only put recyclable materials in the recycling carts. These carts are clearly marked with descriptions of what can and cannot be recycled. If you contaminate the contents of the recycling carts with dirty diapers, food, plastic bags, etc., they will end up in the landfill, defeating the purpose of recycling. We also have cigarette butt receptacles on the beach near the CAMA crossovers. So, please help us keep our town and our beach "green" and clean!
