Cape Hatteras National Seashore will add lifeguard services at the Frisco Day Use Area this Memorial Day weekend. The popular beach, located south of the village of Frisco, will be staffed with lifeguards seven days a week between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
‘We are pleased to provide a fourth lifeguarded beach for park visitors. The Frisco Day Use Area is the most appropriate spot for a fourth stand because the area is very popular and has a large parking area, boardwalk, and restroom facilities,’ said David Hallac, Superintendent of the National Parks of Eastern North Carolina. Lifeguarded beaches are the safest places to swim along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
There are four beach locations that are staffed with lifeguards from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. They are Coquina Beach, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, Frisco and Ocracoke.
