The east coast of the United States is full of beautiful beaches that can be visited for a few days. You can visit alone, with friends or with children, so organize your holidays so you don’t miss the east coast. North Carolina is a must-see destination. The beaches are geographically distributed in 3 regions:
– The Outer Banks (OBX) : includes many popular beaches, such as Avon, Hatteras, Rodanthe, Corolla, Ocracoke, etc. A part of the Outer Banks is preserved by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
– Crystal Coast : includes beaches such as Bogue Banks, Harkers Island, Shackleford Banks, etc.
– Cape Fear : we can find the beaches of Wilmington, Carolina, Kure and Wrightsville.
If you decide to visit these regions , Ocracoke Island is an essential visit. The home of ‘Blackbeard’ Edward Teach, the notorious pirate, was named the best beach in America by Stephen Leatherman, better known as’ Dr. Beach ‘, in 2007. Aside from the excellent beach, Ocracoke is also home to the second oldest lighthouse in the US, even though it is no longer open for viewing.
A relatively unknown beach community, Topsail is an undiscovered gem in the Cape Fear region. Due to the relatively low tourist influx (although the numbers are gradually increasing), Topsail remains a picturesque town, famous for its spectacular beaches and seafood. Nor can we forget Surf City which is a typical beach town. Like all small beach communities, summer is the peak tourist season. The local population uses winter as a welcome break from the busy daily schedule of the tourist season. Surfing and fishing are the most popular activities in this coastal city.
