At the southern tip of the Outer Banks, you will find a place where the glistening sea meets the soft sands of the Crystal Coast, where relaxation and leisure fun are top priorities. There is so much to discover and experience here. From the historic Beaufort waterfront along Taylors Creek, you can see a one-of-a-kind sight of wild horses grazing on nearby Carrot Island. Or, take a ferry ride to the Cape Lookout National Seashore to soak in the stunning natural beauty of the gorgeous Crystal Coast with the radiant sun shining down. The beaches of Bogue Banks offer pristine sand and crystal clear water to make your beach experience a dream come true. Throw a line in the water and hope you can haul in a fish perfect for your dinner. Morehead City, home to one of North Carolina’s two state ports, is a fisherman’s and water lover’s delight. Whether you take on a deep sea fishing adventure or you wish to stay closer to the shoreline as you ride the day’s surf, the Crystal Coast boasts some of the best aquatic activities around. From fishing and sailing to swimming, diving and kayaking, people of all ages have a wide selection of seaside fun from which to choose.
