^ ^ Just curious...by Outer Banks Horseback??
As a longtime local resident and 25 yearvacationer before that to me the ocean is the ocean. To me just sitting and swimming at the KH Lillian St beach access is heaven. Why would i travel down to Coquina or up to Corolla. Naturally as a vacationer many people look for atmosphere, isolation, beach driving and a lot of other things. Just as many people come here and expect all sorts of entertainment. The Outer Banks is an Ocean Beach and the Ocean is its star attraction. Snorkeling, Coral Reefs, Banana Boats, Beach Restaurants and Band Concerts, Boatdwalks NOT HERE AND I HOPE NEVER. Now if your question is for Natural beauty I would say Pea Island or Ocracoke.
