“watch in person what you see on tv!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

When wind is up(and it usually is @Canadian Hole) wind surfers are everywhere! Plenty of free parking,changing & restrooms & drinking water. Parking lot fills up a lot. In warmer times of year,this sound side beach area is really kid friendly. As a bonus stay for the sunsets if after lunch.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

What a great place. You can go kite surfing, wind surfing, fishing, or just hang out and enjoy the salt air. Plus, one of the beast places to see sunset on the island!

“Best wind surfing/kite surfing in the US”
Reviewed 6 July 2008

Canadian Hole is between Avon and Buxton, North Carolina, on Hatteras Island. It is a soundside beach with plenty of parking, restrooms, and shower facilities. I heard many describe this place as the best wind surfing spot in the US! There were many people here from Canada - I suppose this is why they call it Canadian Hole? Many times during my vacation, I spotted 50+ kite surfers and wind surfers here. I enjoyed coming here to relax on the soundside beach and watch all the people who are braver than me! This is also a great spot to swim and float in the water, which was nice since the waves on the beach can be quite extreme. There were many families here with young children. You can drive out with a four wheel drive on the beach and set up for the whole day!
