Outer Banks, NC Guide

About Outer Banks

The barrier islands of the Outer Banks of North Carolina (OBX) offer the beauty of the ocean with long, sandy beaches and breathtaking sunrises. Windsurfing and kitesurfing are ideal here, or choose a quiet day of paddling in the marshlands. Lighthouses, wild horses, clambakes, shell collecting, history, shopping and more can be experience in the Outer Banks. Visit museums like the Wright Brothers National Monument in Kitty Hawk, or take beach walks to view stately and historic oceanfront homes.
