Mobile-friendly, interactive public beach and waterfront access map updated ahead of holiday weekend

RALEIGH

Looking for a spot to visit one of North Carolina’s beaches or coastal waterfronts during the Fourth of July holiday weekend?

The state’s coastal agency last summer developed an interactive public beach and waterfront access map you can access directly from your mobile device.

A recent update to the map was made to include a tool called “Find Sites Near Me,” which will help you locate sites within five miles of your location.

The mobile version of the agency’s popular online access site map provides information for more than 400 access sites along the North Carolina coast. The interactive map includes the location of each site, a site photo, the number of parking spots and any applicable parking fees, restroom and shower facilities, and other amenities.

To view the updated mobile beach access map, type coastalaccess.nc.gov into your browser, or scan the map’s QR code found on the division’s website at: https://deq.nc.gov/about/divisions/coastal-management/coastal-management-beach-waterfront-access-program/coastal-access-sites.
