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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: 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.
