Life on the Pamlico Sound - Inner Banks Marina Communities
A lagoon may sound like the home to mystic mermaids and adventurous pirates. The perfect sunrise over the water, miles of coral reefs and sublime serenity seem like faraway fantasies for many people today. However, in the last few decades, the largest lagoon in the United States, The Pamlico Sound, has attracted attention from tourists and real estate seekers all over the nation. Sailboats here outnumber full-time residents three to one.
The Pamlico Sound is a natural lagoon that stretches 80 miles long and 30 miles wide on the east coast of North Carolina, between The Outer banks and the Atlantic Ocean. This shallow water lagoon and its surrounding Inner Banks area surfaced in the New Bern real estate market in the 1970’s. Today, tourism is booming in the up-and-coming Pamlico Sound area and homebuilding business is skyrocketing around the Inner Banks marina communities.
One of the top communities is River Dunes in North Carolina. The River Dunes Grace Harbor Marina is popular with boaters for its natural beauty and small town charm. This area offers plenty of outdoor activities such as: boating, fishing, wind sports and historic coastal or village tours.
