Coquina Beach is named for the coquina clams that are found here. Great for swimming, this is one of three life-guarded beaches along this drive. Though the water looks enticing, watch out for strong waves and rip currents. Strewn about the beach are the ship-wrecked-remnants of the 4-masted schooner, Laura A. Barnes. Due to the volatile nature of the winds and waves, storms, shoals, pirates and war, many pieces of wreckage can be found along the Outer Banks beaches. They come and go at the whim of the weather. Please use only your camera to capture the memories.
