Hunt for Beach Treasure
Uncrowded beaches make December a great time of year to get out and do some shell seeking or metal detecting in search of your favorite shells, such as whelk, olive, and conch shells. Shark teeth can be found as well, not the mention one of the most prized finds, Outer Banks sea glass.
Metal detecting is allowed on the Northern Beaches of:
- Southern Shores
- Kitty Hawk
- Kill Devil Hills
- Nags Head
However, metal detecting is prohibited within Cape Hatteras National Seashore, including Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco, Hatteras, and Ocracoke.
