    Running along the coast of North Carolina, the Outer Banks is a chain of blissfully unspoilt barrier islands, which entices visitors from far and wide with a winning combination of expansive sandy beaches, world-class water sports, and a tranquil pace of life. Buxton is the bustling epicenter of Hatteras Island, and an ideal base from which to explore the Banks. There's an abundance of alluring Buxton vacation rentals to choose from, many of which boast enviable waterfront locations. Find yourself a home-away-from-home to suit your needs, and look forward to lazy days filled with sunshine, sand and surf.

    World-class water sports and heavenly hikes

    Buxton's breezy seafront and crashing waves offer optimum conditions for adrenalin-pumping sports like windsurfing and kiteboarding. Nearby Old Lighthouse Beach is a hotspot for novice body boarders and expert surfers alike, and surf fishing is another extremely popular local pastime. If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on dry land, the town is surrounded by spectacular hiking trails, many of which pass through the dense, lush Buxton Woods. If you need a break from the sun, Hatteras Island is also a shopper's paradise, with all manner of chic fashion boutiques, hip surf shops, and artisan food stores to peruse.

    Immersive museums and a legendary lighthouse

    Within easy reach of your Buxton vacation rental, you'll find an abundance of awesome attractions. The local skyline is dominated by the distinctive, black-and-white candy-striped Hatteras Island Lighthouse. Visitors can climb over 200 feet to the top, for breath-taking panoramic views. A short drive across the island, the Graveyard of the Atlantic museum offers a fascinating dive into the region's maritime history, with an abundance of Civil War relics on display, and thrilling exhibits about shipwrecks and pirates, guaranteed to enthral young and old alike.

    Long, hot summers in Buxton

    Buxton enjoys a subtropical climate. Summers are long, hot and sunny, with the occasional downpour to alleviate humidity. As you might expect, Buxton vacation rentals are in particularly high demand between June and August, so early booking is a good idea if you're planning a peak season break. It's also worth bearing in mind that North Carolina is sometimes affected by hurricanes and tropical storms. The shoulder months of May and September offer pleasantly warm temperatures, and fewer out-of-towners, so these are great times to visit. Winters are short and mild, with night-time lows generally comfortably above freezing.

    Sea turtles and beautiful birds in Buxton

    Buxton is surrounded by a thrillingly diverse ecosystem. Take a leisurely stroll out of town and you may encounter undulating sand dunes, verdant forests, and saltwater marshes. In the warmer months, you might be lucky enough to spot majestic sea turtles sunning themselves on the shore, whilst adorable seals often show up on the beach during winter, to take momentary respite from the cool ocean. Birdwatchers should keep an eye out for nesting water birds like gull-billed terns and black skimmers, and shorebirds like the American oystercatcher.
