Nags Head Makes Condé Nast Traveler Top 10 Best Beaches in North Carolina

Conde Nast Traveler Top 10 Beaches - Holiday Inn Express Nags Head Oceanfront

It’s no surprise our beaches make the “Top 10 List” for best beaches on most publishers’ lists, but it still feels great every time Nags Head receives recognition!

“Nags Head is classic Outer Banks, windswept and dune-straddled but navigable: a place where the wild and tame collide. Wandering the shrub-grizzled expanses of Jockey’s Ridge State Park can make you feel like you’re in the desert, or on the moon—but that makes it the perfect spot to get your Orville on at the Kitty Hawk Kites Hang Gliding School. If that’s not your thing, cast a line from the charmingly antiquated Nags Head Fishing Pier. (Don’t worry: It’s sturdier than it looks.) —B.R.”

Outer Banks Piers – Jennette’s Pier

Hurricane Isabel devastated Jennette’s Pier in 2003, but NC Aquariums led rebuilding it as an all-concrete, 1,000′ long showpiece. On May 22, 2009, seventy years to the day from its first construction, then Governor Beverly Perdue led the ‘sand breaking’ dedication of this $25 million dollar renovation you can enjoy today. Besides pier fishing and sightseeing you can experience: fishing tournaments/programs, summer day camps, day/night programs, private fishing lessons, volleyball camps & much more. Three large wind turbines plus an extensive water recovery system serve as responsible, educational models for a sustainable future.
