Atlantic Beach is located at the eastern end of Bogue Banks barrier island between Bogue Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Notable for its long, near-straight expanse of off-white sand, Atlantic Beach is an area of coast well known for its water sports. More than one surf shop makes it incredibly easy to hit the waves on a board, while other adrenaline-inducing activities include jet ski rentals and yacht charters.
For those who are looking to enjoy Atlantic Beach without getting on the water, there are beachside bike rentals, and a boardwalk ideal for a short pedal, alongside a skatepark and mini golf. Nearby, visitors to Atlantic Beach will find Fort Macon State Park, the site of military defences built out of 2,379,546 bricks and the site of a major US Civil War siege.
Access to Atlantic Beach is via the bridge from Moorhead City, with plenty of parking in and around the Atlantic Beach area.
