Hi - I saw the earlier thread on beach erosion at Kure from 2012, saying high tide is so high that it comes right up to the dune and that there's a steep drop off entering into the water. I also saw an article saying a replenishment project occurred last spring. Any idea what the beach is like now? I'm used to Corolla but am very frustrated with the traffic and cold water in the past few years, so am trying to decide on which beach to target this year: Carolina, Kure, Topsail, etc.
Wrightsville sounds too much like Ocean City, Md, which is a turn off. Kure seems like the perfect area for us, but am concerned about the water itself, especially for kids. Sharp drop off's isn't very kid friendly. Topsail seems like the best beach, but a lot less going on there.
