Having a beach lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to live oceanfront to enjoy daily beach combing or watch a brilliant ocean sunrise. Most residents on the Outer Banks do not live oceanfront, in fact they choose not to. They prefer to be a part of a thriving community, and living on the less touristy side of this sandbar, all the while partaking in all that living near the beach provides, like surf fishing, shelling, crabbing, kite boarding, paddling, beach 4×4, etc.
