  • Great place to learn or just watch. Sound is shallow there for easy learning. Great parking or can drive to waters edge with appropriate vehicle.  more »
  • Great place to watch the kite surfers and sunset. Loved the easy walk to the beach and shallow waters, but the rough sand and muddy bottom was not for us. We prefer the ocean side.  more »
  • On the route to Cape Hatteras lighthouse this is like a bay where you can catch clams and windsurf. It's not really the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself but it's not crowded so it's a good place to rest plus there's a bathroom with showers
  • Hands down my favorite place on the sound side. The water here is super shallow and you can stand in most parts. We came and paddle boarded here and it was a great experience. Be mindful of the wind and current, we just sat on the paddle boards for a while and the current drifted us way east. This met we had to paddle for quite a while to get back to highway 12. But it's wonderful, I definitely recommend:) this has been one of the most fun things I've done down here in the Outer Banks:)
