Destination guide

Avon's promise of boundless beach adventures

Book one of the many fabulous Avon vacation rentals strung along this shoreline of this tiny Outer Banks resort, and you're guaranteed a spot on the beach. Its golden strands and sun-kissed surf stretch 25 miles, both north and south. That's a lot of beach to enjoy. Kiteboarders and windsurfers put those brisk Outer Banks winds to good use, as they twist and leap for ever more air. And there's plenty of play to be had offshore too. This is reckoned to be the blue marlin capital of the world, while Avon's pier is a legendary surf fishing spot.

Things to do

Avon—stories of lighthouses and shipwrecks

The best-loved attractions in town aren’t hard to find. Step out of one of the many Avon vacation rentals that front the beach, and you'll see the wind-wracked form of Avon Fishing Pier. The lighthouses that stipple the coast are worth seeking out, too. They hint at OBX's reputation as the "ship graveyard of the Atlantic." Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the tallest on the East coast, while Ocracoke has the oldest. The Hatteras Island Visitor Center and Museum of the Sea helps put flesh on the intriguing maritime history of Hatteras Island.


Days to chill and thrill in Avon

With those huge skies, dunes of shifting sand, and restless Atlantic surf, there's a real energy here that demands attention. As well as kiteboarding and windsurfing, there are sand dunes to race over, quiet inlets to paddleboard up, and white surf to cast a fishing line into. It's not all non-stop action, though. Roll out a blanket and picnic with the kids; amble the shore just shelling; or light up a beach barbeque in the evening, before retiring to the beautiful Avon vacation rentals.


Avon's a real all-year-rounder

Given you'll be spending so much time outside here, you'd think that the Avon weather forecast matters. And it does, but not as much as you might think—Avon has 210 sunny days a year. The cool currents offshore also knock the edge off temperatures in summer, so it rarely tops 80°F. Springs are mild, while the winds in fall are great for kiteboarders and windsurfers alike. And in winter, you'll feel like you own the place. Fun on the beach really can be enjoyed much of the year in Avon.

Natural features

Avon's arc of natural wonder

The scenic setting of this Outer Banks seaside village is hard to beat. The 100-mile drive from Norfolk—across tidal inlets, salt-marsh lagoons, and wind-sculpted dunes—reinforces that. Avon sits on an arcing sand barrier that is some 30 miles from the mainland. The isolation is immediate and blissful. Many come here to seek out the amazing birdlife—the whole of Hatteras Island is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore national park. Oyster catchers wade the lagoons, loggerhead turtles dig the soft sands, while out at sea, you might spot bottlenose dolphins playing in the waves.
