Because there is less development in Duck than further down the road, the beaches are much less crowded. The natural beauty of the beaches tends to come out up here better than my photo shows. The downside to less crowded beaches is there are fewer, if any, lifeguards on duty. So, use your head for something besides a handy place to hang your teeth. Our time share was not right on the beach like our hotels in which we stayed down the road those first three times, but it was a short walk past the outdoor pool, up the wooden stairway, past the snack bar, and back down. Luc from France and Fernando from Spain went the the beach only here, but saw quite a lot of other things further down the road.
