Directly over the dunes you will find . . . PARADISE!
Some of the best fishing on the East Coast is found along the 130 miles of accessible beach. You can fish from one of eight piers located between Kitty Hawk and Hatteras Island. Sound fishing is popular along the short bridge on the Nags Head-Manteo Causeway or the Washington Baum bridge. Offshore fishing is offered at marinas located on the Nags Head-Manteo Causeway, Roanoke Island, Oregon Inlet and on Hatteras Island. Or, if you prefer, directly off our beach!
The Outer Banks beaches are perfect for shelling. The strong tides and currents makes the beaches ideal for Mother Nature’s repository of shells.
Often dubbed the "Windsurfing Capitol of the World" steady winds and shallow sounds provides windsurfing opportunities during the spring, summer and fall. Outfitters are located throughout the area providing lessons, clinics, equipment rental and purchase.
There’s so much water around here that there’s a water activity for everyone in the family including jet skiing, surfing, ocean and sound kayaking, sailing, parasailing, and of course, swimming. Outdoor outfitters provide a variety of rentals for equipment and active wear. All you need is a little enthusiasm: Mother Nature will throw in the winds and waves.
