New island appears off coast of North Carolina’s Outer Banks

This mile-long sandbar, dubbed "Shelly Island" for its plethora of seashells and colorful pebbles, has been forming and growing since late spring. Instagram/@chadonka   New island appears off coast of North Carolina's Outer Banks The secret's out. A new island has appeared off the coast of North Carolina's Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and unfortunately for locals, word is spreading -- fast. The mile-long sandbar, dubbed "Shelly Island" for its plethora of seashells and colorful pebbles, has been forming and growing since late spring. Residents and tourists alike are starting to take notice. Reide Corbett, a professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at East Carolina University and a scientist at UNC Coastal Studies Institute, advises people to enjoy exploring the tiny island while they still can. "The thing about the Outer Banks -- they are pretty dynamic. [The island] is kind of neat and interesting and provides new piece of land for people to explore, but it is a dynamic environment," Reide told CBS News. "I wasn't surprised to see it, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it disappear." Chad Koczera was one of the first people to explore the newly-formed island on May 31. He was traveling with his fiancée from Connecticut to Cape Point, the place where they'd gotten engaged, when he stumbled upon an unfamiliar sight. "This was our fifth time down to Hatteras. We like to return to the Point because that's the same spot I proposed," Koczera told CBS News. "We were driving to the Point after a storm to collect shells when we spotted an area we couldn't get to by car." Confused, Koczera pulled out his drone camera to get a better look at the narrow island. When he looked at the footage, he was met with a stunning sight.

Massive $46 million water park to open near Outer Banks next month

By Stephen Katz | The Virginia Pilot POWELLS POINT, N.C. The much-anticipated H2OBX Waterpark in Currituck County will make its debut on the official first day of summer. The company announced Friday on Facebook that the park will open June 21, a Wednesday. It was originally planned for Memorial Day weekend. "We're ready for the most EPIC Summer the Outer Banks has ever seen," H20BX officials said in the post. The $46 million park designed by New York-based Aquatic Development Group will include more than 20 slides, an "adventure river," four "activity pools" with ropes, a 450,000-gallon wave pool and rentable cabanas, The Pilot has reported. It sits on a mostly rural tract just across U.S. 158 from The Pointe Golf Club. If the park expands later to cover the owner's entire 95-acre property, it could become the largest water park in the country. The site is expected to see a daily attendance of around 5,000. Visitors can buy season passes and reserve tickets online. A day pass for those 42 inches or taller will cost $50 and $45 for those shorter. Children under 2 enter free.

Outer Banks beach named among best in US, ranking says

By TAMARA LUSH, Associated Press SIESTA KEY, Fla. — North Carolina has one of the best beaches in the country, according to a new ranking. Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach on the Outer Banks was ranked the third best beach in the country in a ranking by Dr. Beach. It was nudged out by Kapalua Bay Beach in Maui, Hawaii and top-ranked Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Florida. The site uses criteria such as beach width at low tide, beach material and sand softness, among others, to rank each site. Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, a professor at Miami's Florida International University, wrote of the Tar Heel site: "Ocracoke, once the home of Blackbeard the pirate, is still a special place—it is my favorite getaway beach. Here you will find some of the wildest beaches in the country. Big surf dominates in late summer so families with children may want to come earlier in the year. Don’t expect to play golf or stay at the Ritz; the main pursuits are swimming and beachcombing." The sand on Siesta Beach on Florida's Gulf Coast is as fine as powdered sugar, a pure, sparkling white and soft as a kitten's fur — all because it's comprised of 99 percent pure crushed quartz. For that reason, and many others, it was selected this year as the best beach in America by a professor who's made a career ranking and studying beaches around the United States. "The sand is outstanding," Leatherman said. "Every time I go there, I've got to take a bag home with me. It's almost sacrilegious to walk on it with shoes on." Top 10: 10. Beachwalker Park Kiawah Island, South Carolina 9. Coronado Beach, San Diego, California 8. Hapuna Beach State Park, Big Island, Hawaii 7. Caladesi Island State Park Dunedin/Clearwater, Florida 6. Coast Guard Beach, Cape Cod, Massachusetts 5. Coopers Beach, Southampton, New York 4. Grayton Beach State Park Florida panhandle 3. Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach, Outer Banks of North Carolina 2. Kapalua Bay Beach, Maui, Hawaii 1. Siesta Beach Sarasota, Florida On a recent workday, Siesta Beach was packed with people, even though it wasn't particularly sunny. The turquoise water was still gorgeous, the sand still fine. The beach is about 200-300 feet (60-90 meters) wide in some places, which means people can stretch out and not feel crowded. The beach was last year's runner up and one of three in Florida on this year's top 10 list. "It's nice and clean, that's what I look for," said Jamie Gaskin, a 59-year-old retiree from Lakeland, Florida, who was scoping out the beach for a family Memorial Day party. She especially liked the two-story pavilion, which boasts a snack bar and restrooms. It's only two years old and even offers sweet crepes for breakfast and tapas dishes in the early evening. "There's plenty of tables to barbecue and to hang out. And the restrooms were nice and clean. I'd definitely recommend this," she said. Siesta Beach is on a barrier island in the Gulf [...]
