Much of the town is surrounded by tidal wetlands, but the Beaufort River (left) has a small stretch of beach edged by marsh grass near the long boardwalk and boat launch.

Only a 16-mile drive east, Hunting Island State Park is a 5,000-acre preserve with jungle-lush foliage, an 1859 lighthouse, a long fishing pier, and four miles of pristine Atlantic beach.
