A vehicle can be a great way to reach a remote camping spot or to go surf fishing or shelling.
With over 250 species to be found, birding is a year-round activity at the seashore.
The islands of Cape Lookout National Seashore are reachable only by boat.
Ah, camping at the beach. Sea, sand, sun, brilliant sunsets, and dark skies.
Spring and fall at Cape Lookout offer what many consider to be some of the best fishing on the Atlantic Coast.
Only two marked trails, but miles of beach to explore.
Meet the locals.
Managed hunting activities that are compatible with other recreational uses.
Even novice paddlers can cross the open waters of Core Sound and Back Sound under good condition.
For the best shelling, try to comb the beach early in the morning, at low tide, after a storm, or during times of lower visitation.
Always swim with a buddy.
Many windsurfers use the area known as Shell Point on Harkers Island.
