OBX MARKS THE SPOT... FOR SAND AND SEA

With over 100 miles of shoreline, there's no need to travel overseas to find the perfect beach. It's right here on our coast. The eastern sides of our islands are lined with soft sands and a front row view of the Atlantic Ocean. And on the west side, Sounds stretch as far as the eye can see. We wouldn't be The Outer Banks if it weren't for the beaches. Come see for yourself; there's really no place like it. FIND A BEACH >
