The summer resorts, Money Island Beach, Mile 205.7, and Atlantic Beach, Mile 207.0, are at the south end of the Atlantic Beach-Morehead City Bridge, 2 and 3 miles, respectively, west of Fort Macon. The buildings at the beaches are conspicuous. Boats reach the beaches through two dredged channels that branch off from the Intracoastal Waterway at Mile 205.5. Money Island Channel leads southwest to the beach, and Causeway Channel leads west to the causeway, thence south along the east side of the causeway to the beach. The channels are well marked. In 2011, the controlling depth was 2 feet in Causeway Channel; thence in 2010, 5 feet in Money Island Channel between the junction light at the entrance and Light 5.
