We're considering a week rental in July 2010 and would like to find out what the beaches are like in this area. We would be staying near the Nags Head golf course and would likely just walk down to the beach from our rental. Have any of you been on this beach? Is it rocky, sandy, clean, seaweedy??? There will be some young children with us (4,7,9,12), can you let us know if the water is rough or relatively calm? I love to collect seashells. Are there any shells on this beach? Thank you for your help!
