The Beach is Bigger in Avon

If you are a frequent visitor to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, you more than likely never make it as far south as Avon. Most visitors turn around when the Mile Marker hits 17. Do yourself a favor and make that left hand turn toward Hatteras and Ocracoke and drive until you come across the town of Avon.

You will be suprised at the size of the beach once you venture South of Nags Head.

Fishing is better in Avon

Where there is water, there are fish...Whether surf casting, sport fishing from a 47 foot Hatteras, or just dropping a line over the peir Avon has you covered.

Even the grandmas are cooler in Avon
