World's Best Beaches
The Outer Banks often appears on lists of the world's best beaches. We know why!
There are many reasons the Outer Banks is one of the most popular vacation destinations on the East Coast. Great places to stay, restaurants, natural and historic attractions, surf and offshore fishing- but the number one reason is our beaches! From Oregon Inlet to Hatteras Village, Hatteras Island offers over 50 miles of the most pristine accessible beaches in the United States, and Avon is right in the middle of it. Due to being in Cape Hatteras National Shore, much of our oceanfront is undeveloped, fronted by the natural dunes that have been there long before any inhabitants. That has kept them wide, sandy, natural and uncommercialized; perfect for family enjoyment.
