Over the last two to three months, a large sandbar has formed off Cape Hatteras National Seashore (Seashore) in the Cape Point area.

Chad Koczera snapped a photo of the new island with his drone and posted it on Instagram with the caption, "Cape Hatteras point and the new sandbar island".

A crescent-shaped sandy land mass approximately 100 yards (90 m) at its widest point and a mile (1.6km) long has formed near the Outer Banks, a chain of barrier islands in the Atlantic Ocean.

"My fiancée and I were driving to the point after a storm to collect shells when we spotted an area we couldn't get to by vehicle", Koczera told IFLScience.

"I sent the drone up to check it out and noticed this handsome island", says Koczera, who shot the photo above.

The strong currents along with storms could easily wipe out the island within the year. "We're anxious about shark bites, but we're more anxious about drownings", said Bill Smith, president of the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association.

And for residents of North Carolina and visitors to the Outer Banks, their options for those things may have just rapidly expanded. "Do not go alone", Dowdle told ABC News, noting that the water is particularly rough near the island due to strong currents and riptides.

Cape Hatteras Seashore officials say it Shelley Island is a large sandbar, according to the report. Rays and sharks patrol the waters and the discarded hooks from many fish tales could be embedded in the sand, threatening barefoot revelers.

A child walking along the land collecting several sea shells has dubbed it Shelly Island.
