Fodor's Review

White sand beaches, blue-green waters, and a tall lighthouse mark this quiet beach at the southern tip of Cape Lookout National Seashore. A boat is the only way to get here. Passenger ferries leave from Harkers Island, Beaufort, and Ocracoke. Land on the sound side, then walk across a path to the beach, where you'll be greeted by a long beach strand full of seashells. You can also climb the lighthouse tower or tour a museum in the keeper's quarters. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude, sunrise, sunset, swimming.
