The Outer Banks of North Carolina is truly like no other place on Earth. Fishing- and surf-obsessed folks, along with other watersports enthusiasts, flock to this coveted gem, a series of barrier islands protecting the North Carolina coast, for its ultra-warm water during late summer and autumn months and proximity to perfect hurricane swells.

But all it takes is a love for rustic, seaside communities, remote beaches, wildlife, white sands, tall dunes and an appreciation for atmosphere straight out of a postcard in order to enjoy your stay at Cape Lookout National Seashore.

This 56-mile stretch includes North Core Banks, South Core Banks and Shackleford Banks. The area is rural and pristine with its own herd of roaming wild horses, tons of bird and wildlife viewing among a plethora of outdoor sports and activities. Egrets, herons, whales and dolphin are only a few examples of what you’ll come across. Aside from surfing and fishing, the Outer Banks’ signature sports, try windsurfing, sea kayaking, ATV riding. Climb the lighthouse, walk the nature trails, collect shells, go for a swim or go on a ranger-guided tour.
