Town of Duck Beach is recognized as among the “Top 15 Family-Friendly Beaches in America.” It is an off-leash, dog-friendly beach, but you still have to keep a watchful eye on Fido. The area is considered one of the best for a family beach vacation.
You are requested to be safe, courteous, and do your part in keeping this popular beach clean and beautiful. So make sure to clean up after your dog. Unlike most beach towns, the beach has private access. If you are renting a home here, chances are you will get beach access. This is good as it ensures there are not a huge number of cars parked everywhere up to the beach.
Bonfires are not allowed anymore on any beach in the Town of Duck. Since the beach is rarely crowded, it is very popular as a shelling destination. The best time for shelling is after low tide or a storm or hurricane, especially during the off-season. Beer is allowed on the beach, while wine is not officially permitted. You are expected to drink responsibly, especially considering you are expected to keep a watchful eye over your unleashed doggo.
There are plenty of interesting activities both on and off the beach. Shopping is one of the biggest attractions of the area. You will find plenty of locally-owned shops in the center of town as well as numerous coastal shopping complexes. The town’s restaurants are also a big draw; who doesn’t like a round of tropical drinks on a waterfront sunset? Watersports are also an important attraction, without which your Duck vacation will be incomplete.
From shopping to eating to exploring, your visit to Town of Duck Beach has a lot to offer. At the center of it all is of course the dog-friendly beach. Keep an eye out for upcoming festivals when considering a trip to Duck.
