welcome to the nc outer banks

The North Carolina Outer Banks are 130 miles of the North Carolina Barrier Islands. The Outer Banks has over 400 years of history from, the mysterious disappearance of colonists on Roanoke Island, depicted in the Outdoor Drama The Lost Colony to the first manned flight at * Kill Devil Hills.

 

You can visit four of North Carolina’s historic coastal lighthouses here and see where the early colonists lived at the Fort Raleigh National Monument. Also Explore the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The North Carolinas Outer Banks are miles and miles of remote unspoiled beaches where you can enjoy bird-watching, hang gliding, hiking, bicycling, windsurfing, and fishing in some of the best angling waters in the world. Or, just relax on a piece of beach paradise.

 

The southern access from the mainland towns of Cedar Island or Swan Quarter, takes you by ferry to the southern most Outer Banks Island of Ocracoke Island. Traveling north from Ocracoke you come to Hatteras Island. Hatteras is the first town within a section of towns that make up The Cape Hatteras National Shore , which includes Hatteras , Frisco, Buxton, Avon, Salvo, Waves, and Rodanthe.

 

Continuing north, the upper North Carolina Outer Banks include the towns of, Nags Head,
Kill Devil Hills, Southern Shores, Duck NC , Sanderling, Corrolla, and Carova.

 

Located behind Nags Head is the small island of Roanoke Island on which the town of Manteo is located.
