Exploring the Outer Banks

Four adventures NOT to be missed

Outer Banks Mustangs

Wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs – These mustangs are descendants of those brought to the New World by explorers and colonists in the 1500′s. Wild – non-broken, not hand fed and not corralled – they number only 84 but are free to roam on 7,500 acres that includes 11 miles of undeveloped beachfront.

Rodanthe Pier – Offering some of the best fishing on the island, this pier, originally extending 725 feet atop the waves, lost the outer 75′ in a wind/wave storm in February 2015. It’s been repaired and it opened again one month later.

Water Sports – The Outer Banks is a string of narrow islands bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Pamlico Sound to the west. The Sound produces the perfect setting for water sports: the early morning calm for kayaking and SUPS and the brisk breezes coming off the coast for uber kite boarding.

 

 

The Lighthouses – Of course the black & white candy-cane striped Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the most famous and protects one of the most treacherous stretches of the Outer Banks. But don’t forget Currituck Lighthouse, Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, Bodies Island Lighthouse and Ocracoke Lighthouse – they all deserve a visit.
