Park
“Climb to the top of the Jockeys Ridge sand dunes for amazing ocean views! This is a great spot for family photos. Jamie's family used to climb the dunes every year and the kids would roll back down. It's best to go in the evening when the sand is cooler. (If you have littles, be prepared to carry them - the dunes are taller than they look!) You can also take hang gliding lessons at Jockeys Ridge FUN FACT: If you're driving along HW 158 and see what looks like the top of a castle covered by sand peaking out of part of the sand dunes, you're not going crazy. It's an old mini golf corse that the dunes reclaimed!”
