The Outer Banks
The beaches of the outer banks of North Carolina are unmatched in beauty and surprising finds. Whether you stumble across the wild horses of Corolla or the dolphins that frequent the waters surrounding the ribbons of sand that form the outer banks, you are in for a treat every time. Jockey’s Ridge, the largest sand dune of the east coast, seems to tower to the sky as you scale the sides, and the sunset is magnificent to behold if you time your visit just right.
Thanks to the National Seashore, the beaches are pristine and provide visitors with a perfect seaside experience whether you are sunbathing, sightseeing, shell hunting, fishing, or surfing. The outer banks are renowned for fishing adventures that will wow even the seasoned angler. Kayakers, cyclers, and hikers will find some of the experience exhilarating.
History buffs can find everything from the mystery of the Roanoke settlers to pirate lairs and lighthouses to fill any scrapbook or timeline. From one end of the banks to the other you will find quaint villages, seaside paradises, fishing havens, ferry rides, and island getaways to satisfy each member of the family.
