Wheelchair–Friendly 30A Beach Access
Topsail Hill Preserve State Park
There is a $6 fee per vehicle to enter the park.
Topsail has 15 miles of marked trails, picnic areas, cabins, glamping tents, 156 RV sites, clubhouse facilities, and more. An 11-person wheelchair-accessible tram takes visitors on a lovely, tree-lined drive to the 3.2 miles of white-sand beaches at Topsail Hill Preserve. The park also has two all-terrain beach wheelchairs available for guests with mobility issues.
Dune Allen Regional Beach Access
The Dune Allen Regional access is new to 30A. Located across from Stinky’s Fish Camp Restaurant, this 1.51-acre park offers an ADA-accessible boardwalk, ADA-accessible restrooms, parking, outdoor showers, and seasonal lifeguards.
Fort Panic Regional Beach Access
Located just down from the Dune Allen Regional Beach Access is Fort Panic. This beach access is close to the outfall of Oyster Lake, one of 30A’s rare coastal dune lakes. An ADA-accessible boardwalk, parking, and restrooms are available. Lifeguards are on duty from March 1-Oct. 31.
Ed Walline Regional Beach Access
The Ed Walline Regional Beach Access is across the street from Gulf Place, which has restaurants, shopping, an artist district, and more. This popular beach access includes a Mobi-Mat that extends onto the beach, making walking onto the white sand much more manageable. Ed Walline offers an ADA-accessible boardwalk, parking, restrooms, and a beach pavilion. Beach wheelchairs are also available at Ed Walline with a signed waiver and must be operated by an on-duty lifeguard. Call the SWFD at (850) 267-1298 for additional information.
