Easy access from your car to the sand. We stayed directly across the street and this place became familiar quickly, nice place to stroll and plenty of wide open space with lots of dedicated benches for taking it all in.

Absolutely love the boardwalk in Spring Lake. It is just that, a board walk. No commercial shops, just boardwalk. Great for walking. Can ride bikes on boardwalk before 10:00 AM and after 5:00 PM. Lovely expanse of beach.

Weather was a little chill, but the beach is welcoming. You can tell the locals are not really used to seeing African Americans in the town, but a whatever! Very clean!

This is one of the best beaches I've ever been to. Extremely clean and quiet. Con't come to the boardwalk looking for rides and activities. Can't bring food onto beach, but you can purchase it nearby on the boardwalk.

While some people may consider the policies surrounding Spring Lake boardwalk and beach restrictive, it only makes the area one of the best to enjoy!

Doubt it. We never go on weekends or holidays. Too much traffic and way too many people. Winter is best for us. It is empty there.
