Beach conditions


I was wondering what beach conditions are like at Atlantic Beach? Are the beaches wide? Is there good shelling on the beach? Thanks!

I think AB is quite nice. It has benefitted from replenishment and is wide enough for long walks, frisbee, bocci, etc., with a well established dune system and nice maritime forests for most stretches. Development is modest- mostly single family and smaller condo developments so the beach is rarely crowded. It also has relatively little ambient light which makes for better stargazing, and it's east-west orientation makes it somewhat better protected from the surf and makes for really nice sunsets. Shelling is mediocre, i.e. typical of most Atlantic beaches. It's a very nice family beach which means lots of kids and dogs having fun
