Shelley Island reviews
The beach is fascinating, full of wonders with every step you take. I hiked the 1 1/2 mile trail to Shelly Island because the 4 wheel drive vehicles that are necessary if you wish to drive on it...

I can write about this wonderful place for eons. Let me resume by saying: BRING YOUR BEACH LOVING FAMLY HERE (but it is quite a bit of a hike) These beaches will also do a good - a world away type of place - for a romantic escapade or even honeymoon. The area is prone to hurricane and strong storms, which adds to the charm but it means you need to consider vacation insurance (which I recommend). The area can be considered the mecca of kite surfing, windsurfing, and the likes. Too much to write. Do your research. Plan it well. You won't regret it.
I absolutely LOVE visiting the Outer Banks, especially Hatteras Island! I like the intimacy and ability to enjoy nature without the high rise hotels and crowds. The area around the lighthouse is so picturesque. The sandbars and shifting formations they create are unique to the area. Grab a coffee and a book and relax on the beach in the morning. My favorite NC beach location!
