Welcome to the Outer Banks

A 200-mile stretch of barrier islands just off the coast of North Carolina, the Outer Banks was formed by centuries of wind, water and sand blown from the Atlantic Ocean. It's a place of rich history, that inspires a true sense of adventure. From Corolla down to Hatteras, each town and island along the Outer Banks offers a unique experience.
