Cape Hatteras National Seashore
The National Seashore covers miles and miles just south of Nags head. View undeveloped coastline and see large flocks of migratory birds and waterfowl in the spring and fall on Pea Island!
Several beach accesses, a few hiking trails, leads to Oregon inlet. Access for boaters and kayakers. leads to 2 light houses.
Miles and miles of deserted beach....absolutly beautiful this park runs from Nags Head to Ocracoke and takes in most of Hatteras Island,,,,almost 100 miles..
Beautiful Drive down Highway 12 towards Hatteras and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. If you get to Buxton by noon, go get an Apple Ugly at the Orange Blossom Cafe.
“Oregon Inlet is located south of the Vitamin Sea. This area is 4x4 accessible. Many folks like to take a ride on the beach, drop their fishing line and enjoy this special place. A permit is required to bring your vehicle to this location but it’s worth it! The Dare County website will provide instructions on how to obtain this permit. ”
“This sushi place is within walking distance and they have more than just sushi.”

“The best fried fish - lunch. and the freshest fish, arrives daily at the nearby docks in Wanchese.”
