From Ocean to Forest

Miles of Pristine Coastline

With miles of pristine coastline and plenty of ways to access the water, Indian Beach is best known for its beautiful beaches. Indian Beach and Salter Path Public Beach are popular public beaches, though it is possible to access both the Atlantic and the Bogue Sound from just about anywhere in town. Indian Beach is also popular for its turtle population, drawing visitors every year to watch hundreds of baby turtles hatch in the sand and scuttle towards to the safety of the waves.

Acres of Maritime Forest

It’s not all beach on the Crystal Coast — The Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area offers 265 acres of wild maritime forest along a high dune ridge between salt marsh and Bogue Sound. It offers two walking trails for forest exploration, as well as benches and wildlife viewing areas throughout the area of wooded and marshy terrain. It is also home to the North Carolina Aquarium.

Attractions, Recreation & Education


Indian Beach is best known for its beaches, but white sand isn’t its only appeal. Head to Lost Treasure Golf and Raceway for minigolf and go-karting or explore Salter Path’s collection of boutiques, restaurants, and seafood eateries. Water sports are also popular — from paddling to motorboat sports to fishing, and the area offers many rental shops for all your boating or water-ski needs.


With miles of beautiful beaches, it’s not hard to get outside and enjoy beautiful weather! But beaches aren’t the only appeal; hiking and camping are also available, and biking, picnicking, and outdoor relaxation are popular options. The Tradewinds Marina offers boat access to the water, while beachside parks offer scenic areas for relaxation and picnics.
