Corolla is amazing! The only beach I've been too where you can drive you vehicle (make sure it's 4 wheel drive---towing is expensive) on the beach and see wild horses roaming the dunes or walking along the ocean. We stayed in Kill Devil Hills, but spent everyday at this beach. Be careful walking to and from the ocean and your towel...you have to look both ways or you may get run over. Not a usual thing to have to worry about.
