Due to public safety reasons, the Admiral Street public beach access in the 2600 block of South Virginia Dare Trail is now closed to non-emergency vehicles wishing to drive on the beach. However, the Bladen Street public access, to the south, in the 3200 block of South Virginia Dare Trail, is now open for vehicles to enter and exit the beach.
Four-wheel drive, state inspected vehicles with a proper Town permit (which costs $25), are allowed on the beach in both Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills from October 1st through April 30th each year. Click here for more information on beach driving.
Both accesses remain open to pedestrians.
