Where is a beach with Tide Pools?

Does anyone know of a beach which has tide pools (the kind with sand not rocks) in North Carolina. I visited a beach when I was 3 which had tide pools and thought it was the best thing. Now I want to take my 2 year old son to a beach with tide pools. I don't even know if they are in the same place year after year.

I think it was Wrightsville Beach, but not sure. Plus there are more condos in Carolina Beach and other places.

Many areas of the Outer Banks have tidal pools. I think it's in their nature to move though. Last summer, we had a big one in our area od Corolla. Great place to play.

Are you thinking of tidal poo;s in which Children(and adults ) can play, or those which retain water at all times in which you can fish? I would say virtually every beach has the former. I know they are prevalent at Pine Knoll Shores and Atlantic Beach. The larger ones can be found on the outer banks down to Shackleford and Bear Island but these are not readily accessible.
