Referred to as Kinnakeet, the Algonkian heritage name, by locals, Avon retains its tight knit community feel despite becoming a highly popular vacation destination. With its beautiful beaches and hot-spot fishing pier, Avon also has some of the conveniences of mainland living like a supermarket, restaurants, fitness center and plentiful shopping opportunities.
This small North Carolina beach town, Avon offers something for everyone. Expansive beaches and pools for family fun, the Avon Pier is a popular fishing spot and the many public accesses to the Pamilico sound brings athletes from all over the world. On most days you will find windsurfers racing across the calm water and kiteboarders soaring through the air, performing breath taking stunts.
