Once again, Cape Hatteras has been declared one of THE BEST beaches in the country by famous Dr. Beach! Each year Dr. Beach travels the nation’s coastlines, searching for beaches that meet his strict criteria for “best beach.” The 2011 list has just been released and Cape Hatteras came in at an impressive #5! Those of us that live and vacation here think it is #1!
Dr. Beach uses a list containing 50 criteria, rating sand softness to scenery to the amount of jellyfish in the water! Here is what Dr. Beach said about Hatteras Island:
“Bulging far offshore of the mainland coast as a barrier island, Cape Hatteras was the first National Seashore. Providing some of the best board surfing along the East Coast, as well as the most famous lighthouse in the United States, Cape Hatteras attracts beachgoers to its historic fishing villages. Nature lovers adore the excellent beachcombing and superb fishing.”
Those are just a few reasons so many people choose Cape Hatteras as their vacation destination. It is the perfect place to relax with your toes in the sand OR participate in an adventure on the water. There is no other place in the country like Hatteras Island. It truly is a unique area with gorgeous, clean beaches, breathtaking scenery and bountiful history.
Every day is like a vacation and all of us here at Surf or Sound Realty are proud to work on one of THE BEST beaches in the country and happy to share it with our vacation guests who love it, too!Picture of the Week Climbing the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse
