The Secret Tropical Beach In North Carolina Where The Water Is A Mesmerizing Blue

The entire North Carolina coastline is a wonderful place to explore. From beach towns to resort-like islands, you’re sure to find an atmosphere that suits your desires. But when you want to get away to a beach that’s entirely undeveloped, it can be difficult to find such a place along our coast.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Masonboro Island is located immediately south of Wrightsville Beach. You’ll need a boat to access this undeveloped island. It’s open year-round, but has no facilities and no drinking water supply. Pets are allowed as long as they are on a leash. Primitive camping for no more than 48 hours is perfectly legal, just make sure your tent is above the high-tide line before you go to sleep.
