North Carolina Beach Options for Your 2019 Vacation

Best Beaches BHI

If you are beginning to think about your 2019 vacation plans, then selecting the best beach to visit may be something you’ve started to research online. North Carolina is home to some of the most amazing beaches on the east coast. Whether you are looking to surf, fish or quietly stroll along and watch the water, there is something here for everyone.

Below is a list of some of the best beaches that can be found in eastern North Carolina and what makes them special.

    1. Bald Head Island is known for its beautiful beaches nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Cape Fear River. One of the things that makes BHI special is that you can only access it by ferry. You can spend the day on the beach or take a walk through through the Maritime Forest. If you want breathtaking views of the entire island be sure to visit Old Baldy while you are visiting.


    1. Kure Beach is perfect for people who desire a ton of options during their beach vacation. It is home to the oldest fishing pier on the east coast and has an aquarium within walking distance. You will also find several amusement park rides, a new boardwalk and a state park.


    1. Cape Hatteras National Seashore is another popular North Carolina destination. This area has beaches that stretch from Ocracoke to Nags Head which includes 72 miles of seashore. This location is a great option for people who love to snorkel and spend time in the water.


    1. Emerald Isle is known as the “crown jewel of North Carolina’s Crystal Coast.” Many tourists love to take boat tours to view the wildlife that can be found around this scenic island.


  1. Wrightsville Beach is steps away from Wilmington, NC and all the restaurants, shopping and activities that the city has to offer. However, you may want to spend your time scuba diving and exploring a few of the 200 shipwrecks that can be found off the shores of Wrightsville Beach.

We are sure you will enjoy your beach vacation no matter where you choose to go. Hopefully, this short list has given you some additional information to aid in your selection.
