Do I need a ticket to see the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse?

Is there a public beach access in Buxton that doesn’t require an ORV permit?

There are two free parking lots available with walk-over points from either lot. During certain months this beach is also lifeguarded.
Is there a grocery store in Buxton?
