North Carolina's Cape Hatteras National Seashore has always been stunning, but now there's a new wonder for visitors to explore.
A new island has appeared in the ocean almost overnight.
Spotted by eagle-eyed locals on the ground -- and photographed by Chad Koczera -- the sandbank has grown from tiny isle to large land mass.
Now visitors are braving the waters to explore this new addition to the shoreline.
"So I sent my drone up to check it out," he says.
Koczera was rewarded with spectacular photos of this sandy island.
The island is roughly one mile long and located in surfing hotspot Cape Point. But officials have warned that people should not attempt to swim to the island. Waters are deep and the current is strong. Dave Hallac, superintendent of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, told The Virginian Pilot that Cape Point's shoreline is constantly changing.
The island could disappear as quickly as it arrived. But in the meantime, locals and visitors alike can enjoy the ever-changing Cape coastline, as long as they take the necessary precautions.
