Nags Head Stories and Tips

Shelling

Crab Photo, Nags Head, North Carolina

The beaches here are perfect for shelling and beachcombing. Our 3-year-old couldn’t get enough of this activity. We just gave her a bucket and she spent hours walking along the beach picking up seashells. Of course, the waves washing in over her bare feet got her pretty excited also.

But if you are looking for some good souvenir shells, the best time to look is early in the morning or after a storm.
