MB is beautiful and was a great place to enjoy the ocean especially since they've built the boardwalk. But I also worked EMS in this town and no the horrible undertows and currants. I would not recommend going in the water.

You'll fall in love with this walk and wish you could do it everyday! The ever changing sky over the ocean and prism of colors as the sun rises and sets are breathtaking.

Our second time here and we just love it! We were lucky enough to stay nearby for a week and enjoy the view from our hotel room. The walk along beach is very nice and so peaceful. Hope to come back next year.

Moonstone Beach is a gem. Great place to walk and enjoy the ocean views. The boardwalk is just wonderful and it's so relaxing. It's a great place to unwind. I look forward to walking there every trip.
