a REAL 10 best OBX list
An Outer Banks 10 best list from skateboarding to sunsets.
This may be the best top ten list of Outer Banks things to do we’ve come across. Writing for REAL Watersports, one of the first and largest Outer Banks kiteboarding companies, Chris Stellato put together an easy to do list of some of the best things to do.
“The Outer Banks of North Carolina (sometimes stylized as “OBX”) is known worldwide as the #1 kiteboarding destination in the USA. Additionally, the Outer Banks (and Cape Hatteras especially) boasts some of the best and most consistent waves for surfing on America’s East Coast.
But what about other things to do besides water sports? Whether you are traveling alone, as a couple or in a family group with young children, the Outer Banks offers a wide variety of activities to keep everyone entertained and having fun all vacation long. Want to press the “easy button” on planning your Outer Banks activities? Check out our local-approved list of the Top 10 Things To Do on your Outer Banks Vacation.
#1- Pristine, Uncrowded Beaches
With over 100 miles of beautiful beaches on the Outer Banks, spending some time in the sand is a must. If you’re looking for solitude or just want to avoid any crowds, the beaches of Cape Hatteras (south of the Oregon Inlet Bridge) are where you want to be. There are miles and miles of empty beaches in Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge (in between Oregon Inlet and the village of Rodanthe) where you can sunbathe on secluded sands or walk for hours without seeing another person. The beaches fronting the small towns on Cape Hatteras are also uncrowded, and are a great place to enjoy a beach bonfire in the evenings (beach fire permits are FREE and can be obtained at the National Park Service website).”
