Avon, or Kinnakeet as it was once called, is a fantastic Atlantic beach village. The region is known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic for it's many shipwrecks that still lay just yards off the coast. The winds are perfect for sailing and kite sports. The water is often rough enough for surfing and sometimes calm enough for wading. Most of the seaside homes are weekly rentals. It's a quiet beach which is great for families but it also has a fantastic character appealing to travelers. Besides the sports Avon is close to Hatteras Light House and nature trails.
Avon also serves as a great base for Pirate Hunters! Ocrakoke Island, site of Blackbeards death and supposed treasure, is just short drive and ferry ride away.
