Crabbing in the Outer Banks

While there are several attractions you’d like to try in North Carolina during spring break, we bet that crabbing in the Outer Banks never crossed your mind. For those of you who have never taken a moonlit stroll down the beach, Ghost Crabs are the most active and visible at night. Locals and guests alike shine flashlights along the shoreline to spark the crabs’ reaction. Keep in mind; you can also go crabbing in the Outer Banks during the day. Just dig in the shallow water, and dozens of critters will crawl to the surface, such as sand crabs and sand daggers.
