Cape Point in Buxton, North Carolina is the "hallowed ground" of surf fishermen heading to the Outer Banks. The "Point" is formed by the warm Gulfstream waters from the south colliding with the colder Labrador current from the North.

Fishermen have landed enormous fish over the years, including the legendary red drum.

The Point also serves as a focal point over beach access, as the National Park Service continually imposes restrictions on access.
