Outdoor living is at the heart of the coastal region. Beaches, boating, fishing, hiking, biking, camping…this region has it all, which means there’s an activity for every age, interest, and vacationer. For those who love the beach, the Crystal Coast has white-sand and surf in excess, including oceanfront condos with private beaches and public access beaches. With a plethora of local businesses, plenty of fishing piers and boat accesses, and one of Coastal Living Magazine’s “Best Beaches”, the Crystal Coast is an easy favorite of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. The coast has several marinas on the Bogue Sound, which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway and leads to the open ocean. Anglers can enjoy everything from offshore fishing to boat fishing to deep-sea fishing.
