If you are heading to the beach, you won’t be alone.

With the peak of the summer season upon us, the area beaches are a prime destination for beach-lovers of all types and with a variety of interests.

Whether you are seeking a play day with the kids or a little respite by the sea, officials say a little common courtesy can help make a day at the beach a good one for everyone.

“There are all kinds of people who come out and are sharing the beach, families with children, seniors, large groups, individuals. Be mindful of the people around you and be courteous of others,” said Alesia Sanderson, director of the Emerald Isle Parks and Recreation Department.

In short, treat others as you would want to be treated, Sanderson said.

There is no ordinance against smoking on the beach in Emerald Isle, she said, but keep in mind that others around you may not tolerate cigarette smoke well.

Most towns have a noise ordinance that limits sound by decibel level.
