Springers point is a magical 10 minute walk through a small forest of live oaks which opens up to a beautiful beach. A must do if you’re on Ocracoke Island

We walked through the preserve to watch the sun set. Gorgeous. Very quiet trail. The beach at the end on the sound side was lovely. We found shells, crabs. And watched the sun set
