A Drone Flew Over The Crystal Coast In North Carolina And Captured Mesmerizing Footage

North Carolina has plenty of beautiful, pristine coastline. From the OBX to southern beaches, it’s no surprise our beaches have consistently been ranked as some of the most beautiful not only on the East Coast, but in America. Yet, there’s one little area that is truly different than the rest, with crystal clear water, waves perfect for surfing, quaint beach towns and even a remote island with wild horses. The Crystal Coast is a true gem of the North Carolina coast. The 85 miles of pristine coastline is enough to fill up not only a weekend away, but a whole week.

Many vacation here every summer, but with the summer season soon coming to a close, you might need that extra push to book a September or October vacation. To be honest, the Crystal Coast is not just beautiful or pristine in the summer, but year round. This aerial footage posted by Bluewater NC will have you DREAMING of a beach escape ASAP. Hey, it might even inspire you to make a quick day trip!

Alright, I’m ready for my weekend away, how about you?

If you need more reason to visit the Crystal Coast, Shackleford Banks is home to wild horses and the clearest water you’ll find in North Carolina. Read about it here.
