With summer winding down…you can surely snag some deals on a beachside bungalow to make the most of the two months of sunshine and hot weather left. Unsure of where to start? I posted
an article earlier this year about the best beaches, but there are a few I left out…
1. Holden Beach
Holden Beach is a quaint beach town bustling with beach houses and local cuisine. Located in Brunswick County this gem is quite a popular secret for seaside adventures.
2. Ocracoke Beach
Ocracoke is a charming beach village with 16 miles of undeveloped coastline.
3. Kure Beach
Kure Beach is NC's oldest fishing pier. It is perfect for a laid back family vacation and offers an aquarium and beachfront parks.
4. Nags Head
Located in Dare County, Nags Head is a more popular destination on this list, namely because of Jockey's Ridge. If you're looking for a more exciting family vacation with plenty to see, look into Nags Head.
5. Coquina Beach
Coquina is located off the Cape Hatteras National Seashore near the Wright Brothers National Memorial. On this laid back beach you can enjoy miles of waves and peaceful shoreline.
6. Atlantic Beach
On Atlantic Beach you might have to deal with some crowds, but you'll still get all the beachy amazingness the crystal coast has to offer.
Duck is quaint, charming town in the Northern Outer Banks...but this still doesn't stop the amount of visitors that come flooding in each summer to get a slice of the seaside charm. A late August vacation is the perfect time to skip the crowds but embrace what Duck is really all about.
8. Surf City
Maybe you can catch some waves at this beautiful beach located on Topsail Island.
For a quiet, romantic vacation in this otherwordly OBX town, book a house in Rodanthe.
If you're looking to camp...or take your camper...Frisco is a great beach location on the OBX.
