Atlantic Beach

Atlantic Beach is pretty much a standard beach resort and for us had less appeal than the laid-back atmosphere of Ocracoke or the historical prettiness of Beaufort or Wilmington, though it made a good stopover en route to the latter from Washington. But that doesn’t mean it was without its attractions. For one thing it offers a wide choice of reasonably priced (because of the competition) accommodation and decent seafood restaurants. For another, the beach was lovely and relatively unspoiled – and particularly so first thing in the morning as we walked beside it before breakfast and spotted dolphins just out to sea.

Sunrise In Duck

North Carolina has a whole coastline of beaches, which we rarely see because we are in the InterCoastal Waterway. That's because the North Carolina Atlantic coast is so hazardous for boating.

This past winter we saw the beaches along the northern barrier islands of the Outer Banks from Corolla to Ocracoke. One morning I got up at sunrise to take these pictures.

Atlantic Beach

South of the Outer Banks, down to the Cape Fear River are a second stretch of beaches. The area around Atlantic Beach from Cape Lookout South is called the Crystal Coast. South of that is Bald Head, Kure Beach, Carolina Beach, Sunset Beach, New Topsail Beach, Onslow Beach and many others.

The area is very popular with vacationers. The population of Atlantic Beach increases by ten fold in the summer.

Go to the Beach!

The beaches are nice and the water can get nice and warm. We swam with dolphins once! The problem with the beaches is that the Houses are too close to the shore line and when they get bad storms, the beaches are effectively lost. Sad!!!

Carolina Beach: boating,...

Carolina Beach: boating, seafood, site seeing, and beach combing
This area is nicknamed 'little Hollywood' because a lot of movies are filmed here. Including The Inkwell and House of Cards. Also nearby lies Cape Fear. Backdrop for the movie (Cape Fear) starring Robert DeNiro.

Wrightsville Beach
