Noted for its solitude and miles of sandy shoreline, Nags Head has been named one of the “28 Best Beaches on the East Coast” by vacation destination outlet,

Travel and Leisure contributor Stacey Leasca notes the following as to why Nags Head received the inclusion on the list:

What would a list of great Eastern Seaboard beaches be without mention of the Outer Banks? For the ultimate in solitude, head to Nags Head and its 12 miles of sandy shoreline. There are plenty of public access points — all you need to do is find a patch that’s ideal for you and set up shop. Just make sure to pack enough water and snacks to last the day. If you really want to unplug, consider camping in the Outer Banks — at the Oregon Inlet Campground, you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves.

Nags Head, North Carolina joins the ranks of several other beaches spanning across the country including those in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.P
