The Carolinas have a lot going for them: great universities with progressive innovation, a relatively stable economy, and the beautiful beaches. Check out our list of beaches to visit once your Raleigh Movers are done unpacking your beach buckets.



Cape Hatteras has something fun for every person in the family. You can relax in the sun, bust out the surf-board, or enjoy the historic treasures. This idyllic beach runs approximately 70 miles along the coast of the Atlantic ocean. This beach has everything you could want out of your ocean experience, including an inspiring lighthouse view that lets guests gaze for miles across the beach and ocean.



Bald Head Island might leave you feeling like you just left a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting. This island might inspire you to stop and spend the weekend, but you’ll leave more relaxed than ever. The island has over 15 miles of beach to explore, forests with hiking trails, and a luxurious golf course.



This pristine beach is the treasured jewel of the North Carolina coast. This section of coast is in between the Atlantic Ocean and the Bogue Sound making some the clearest, calmest water on the eastern coast, great for wading and relaxation. So grab your fishing pole or get ready to learn to surf. Whether you’re walking the beach during sunset with a date or building sandcastles together with the family, Emerald Isle is ready to welcome you to North Carolina.
