Top requested pages:  Free Visitor's Guide  |  Find a Vacation Rental Home  |  View Deals  |  Beach Driving Information 

Tucked away where the paved road ends on Currituck's northern Outer Banks lies twelve miles of pristine beaches so remote that they're only accessible by four-wheel-drive vehicle. From Carova to Corolla, NC, you'll find nothing but sun, sand, secluded beach rental homes, and the legendary Corolla wild horses that have roamed our shores for almost 500 years. Recently voted the "#1 Favorite Beach from the US and Caribbean"* on Coastal Living's Daily Catch blog, visitors to Currituck's Outer Banks can choose to do as much or as little as they desire in this unspoiled coastal paradise.

If the open ocean and secluded family-friendly beaches what you are looking for, there's no better place to spend your vacation. Fodor's recently named us as one of the "Best Family Beaches on the East Coast", and US News & World Reports named the Outer Banks #1 in the "Best Family Beach Vacations in the USA". Our family-friendly beaches are enjoyed primarily for their seclusion, and feature miles of pristine four-wheel-drive shoreline and natural landscapes that draw a large amount of visitors each year. Visitors can choose from a variety of lodging options, including hotel rooms but primarily vacation rental homes from 2 to 24 rooms.
