Welcome to Outer Banks

The long stretch of barrier islands and sand spits known as the Outer Banks of North Carolina is a place of breathtaking beauty and a national historic treasure. Visitors come to enjoy over 100 miles of beaches, explore charming seaside villages, and observe birds, wildlife, marine life, and wild horses. The Kitty Hawk Woods Coastal Reserve maritime forest and Hatteras Island along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore are perfect for kayak and paddleboard expeditions. For high adventure, try a day of offshore fishing on the hunt for big game fish like sailfish, tuna, and wahoo. Or take to the air with a hang glider only a few miles from the spot where the Wright Brothers made their first flights.
