Description
In the late 1800s, when “surf bathing” was popular, beachgoers were transported across the Intracoastal Waterway to Atlantic Beach by sailboat. A pavilion was built on the beach in 1887, which offered refreshments and a place for changing clothes. Ever since then Atlantic Beach has been a popular spot for summer tourists.
The 265-acre Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area is 7 miles northwest of Atlantic Beach; nature trails and observation decks afford views of the coastal woodlands. A Marine Resources Center is nearby off SR 24 on Bogue Sound.
