                          Sailfish in Avon is located a stone's throw from the beach access behind beautiful huge dunes. The pristine beach is uncrowded and invites you to sunbathe, surf, body board, surf fish, and look for shells to your heart content. It is so convenient if you have lots of beach gear, toys, fishing poles, etc. The large deck facing the ocean gives you a wonderful area to read and sunbathe! All you have to do is relax and enjoy! Avons boasts many terrific restaurants, from coffee shops and family restaurants to fine dining. A crowd pleaser is the Avon Pier where you can fish and watch the locals surf and body board. The only chain grocery store for the whole island is also located in Avon. Spa Karu in Avon features a workout gym, sauna, a beauty shop, massages, yoga and other classes and services to truly spoil yourself and yours! Guys can go deep sea fishing and their gals can spend the day at the spa.

                          Gals can also go to the many fine giftshops and galleries for shopping....Studio 12 features local and NC artists..you can shop for art whether you are looking for paintings, pottery, photography, jewelry, and other unique items. Adults and children both will enjoy painting pottery, making mosaics, or glass fushion jewelry.There are also bead making shops in Avon. Lots of things to do to keep the kiddies and teenagers occupied on a rainy day or when they have had too much beach time!

                          The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is located 8 miles south of Avon. It is the tallest and most famous lighthouse in America and features a gift shop. There are 2 quality museums on the island which you can browse and visit their gift shops The Native American Musuem has a tremendous collection of pottery, beading, and artifacts from Native Americans from all over North America. The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum provides an eye opening litany of the ships which have wrecked in the treacherus Diamond Shoals waters.

                          Okracoke Island, home to Blackbeard, the infamous pirate, is just a free ferry ride away from Hatteras Island. It is a fun day trip where you can enjoy beautiful beaches, perhaps a wild pony sighting, gourmet restaurants, and lovely gift shops.

                          Birdwatching at Pea Island is spectacular, especially in the fall and winter months. Migratory snow geese arrive in the thousands in the early winter.
