Welcome to the Outer Banks of North Carolina! Our unique family of small seaside towns and villages shares four islands, providing an unparalleled front-row view of Mother Nature's splendor at the edge of the continent. Spanning about 200 km, our island chain extends approximately 50 km into the vast Atlantic Ocean, earning the whimsical nickname of a giant hockey stick from Canadian fans viewing it from space. During late summer and fall, relish in the pleasant air and water temperatures averaging in the high to mid-20s C. Fondly known as the OBX by repeat visitors, our beach destination distinguishes itself from others on the journey between us and cities like Toronto, Ottawa, or Montreal. Remarkably narrow, our islands, at about 3 km wide or even less, boast one of the longest stretches of undeveloped beaches in the United States, including the breathtaking 100 km-long Cape Hatteras National Seashore which is home to the Outer Banks’s Canadian Hole renowned as one of the world's top kiteboarding and windsurfing destinations, a prime spot for surfing on the Atlantic Coast, and a haven for birdwatchers in the Americas.
