Summer sure is taking its time getting here but you are probably already thinking about sun and sand. We’ve found some of the best non-crowded beaches on the East Coast to help you decide your destination!
Bethany Beach is like the quieter sibling of Rehoboth Beach in Delaware. Bethany is marked by long, non-crowded stretches of beautiful sandy beach. The town itself is also a gem, with quaint little restaurants and cafes.
Located in North Carolina, Topsail Beach is found on a quiet barrier island. There are four different beaches there and they all stay relatively quiet even through the busy summer months.
Sandbridge Beach is found in Virginia. This non-crowded gem also has the benefit of being close to Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park. In addition to sunbathing and surfing, you can stroll along great nature trails found at these two great parks.
USA Today calls Emerald Isle “perhaps the most beautiful stretch of sand in the Carolinas.” You’ll find it at the southern tip of the Outer Banks. Unlike other parts of that very popular area, Emerald Isle remains sparsely populated throughout the summer.
