Atlantic Beach welcomes new visitors and returning vacationers with warm sunshine and a treasure of activities. Atlantic Beach has a retro “beach-town” feel of days past and has been North Carolina’s “go-to” beach since the 1930s. Located at the eastern end of Bogue Banks, Atlantic Beach features a laid-back, friendly feel with wide sandy beaches, a boardwalk, and a commercial district with plenty of dining and shopping options. Lush nature trails, public parks, and beach accesses will draw you in. This small town is also home to Fort Macon State Park, a historic Civil War fort, which is the most visited state park in North Carolina. Come and enjoy the beautiful beaches and landmark attractions while enjoying the history, heritage, and incredible beauty the area is known for.
