Cape Hatteras National Seashore
This 75 mile, 30,000 acre seashore extends from Bodie Island to Ocracoke Island and offers the perfect environment for strolling on the beach, shelling, fishing, surfing, snorkeling, campfire gatherings, beautiful sunsets, birding, and wildlife watching. National Park Rangers are on patrol daily.
Been going here since 1982. Started in Duck when it was a sleepy village; bu that's been ruined with McMansions right next to each other. Moved on to Salvo/Waves/Rodanthe, which is less commercial and has a great beach and big waves. On further to Ocracoke, but it's a long dang day to get there. It does, however, have probably the nicest beach; no houses or development on it outside of town. Quaint little village; sort of the Key West of North Carolina.
All the comments I read were about not being able to drive on the beach. If that's all you want that; go to Daytona. Also, not sure why they have this listed as being in Manteo? The beaches of the Banks are so so varied that you cannot include them all in one listing.
im old school i rember one road in one road out, i liked it that way. keeped the want abes out . the park service closes a spot hear,and a spot there. and your going to knock the place.its( #5) in the US. they must be doing something right. i have an idea take your family to jersey.my family loves watching shore birds, turtles. osprey.we love the ocean,the beach.that is what makes hatteras, hatteras. and if a section is closed,theres a (130) more miles of seashore im sure we can find a spot thats not. O YES BY THE WAY WHERE NOT (LIBS) SO DONT GO THERE. just go to mertle.
We've been visiting the Outer Banks for about 15 years and each year more beach has been closed more frequently and for longer periods for nesting piping plovers. It seems that the piping plover population has been increasing year after year. Then again, everything isn't always what it seems. Sadly, it all comes down to who has more money for their agenda.
We go every year to the outer banks. There is nothing like camping at the outer banks. We stay every year at Cape Woods Campground. We only go to the beach for the beach. So we tent camp and are on the beach very early to set up our canopy and stay all day. If you want a very friendly, inexpensive camp ground check out Cape Woods. Can't wait for the week of JULY 4th.
Beautiful area that is part of the National Seashore. No marauding beach buggies, litter, and t- shirt shops. Just you, the native critters, and the ocean. It's heaven. These places deserve and need to be protected.
Hey I know that the Cape Hatteras being closed for the birds is frustrating but how many beaches along the outer banks are this way? The outerbanks, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head are all great areas to visit....Take advantage of the whole area.....
Guys, and Girls, I keep seeing people writing about the beaches being closed for the sand pipers. I must say all of those comments are correct. The entire heritage of the banks is at risk because of this. All for a bird that is in no real danger. As a matter of fact only the juvinille birds nest close to the water. These birds do not need our help. More bleeding heart liberal crap ruining our beach.
Go to the Banks, and enjoy but see for yourself whats going on.
