Beaches

Beach fun measured in miles.
The Outer Banks has a way of changing people and opening their eyes to new experiences and passions. It's like rounding a corner and discovering a whole new world you never knew existed. The wild and natural beaches of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore tend to catch people by surprise; no one expects that you could drive for 20 to 30 minutes at a time down a two-lane coastal highway and see only rolling sand dunes, sea oats and a menagerie of wildlife.

Formed by the elements over thousands of years, the Outer Banks sweeps way out into the Atlantic Ocean; the trademark geography of Cape Hatteras is evident on any map of the East Coast. The OBX is a convergence of two massive ocean currents, the warm Gulf Stream and the cooler Labrador Current. Here, the whimsy of the winds and waves provide a spectacular natural stage for outdoor recreation like hang gliding off sand dunes, kiteboarding, wind surfing, kayaking, surfing and paddleboarding, not to mention the soft adventure offerings like bird watching, hiking and horseback riding on the beach.
