The super sun, sand and surf on the Outer Banks NC are well known to many, but there are also hidden special summer secrets to discover this time of year. Beachcombers will notice that the pull of the full moon often causes huge tidal pools on the beach at low tides. On nighttime strolls you are also likely to see bioluminescence rolling in the Atlantic Ocean waves. Sometimes this luminescence even permeates the beach, so it glows around your steps as your foot presses into the sand. These incredible natural phenomena are magical to experience!
