The Outer Banks is home to rolling sand dunes, expansive marshland, the beautiful shore of the Atlantic Ocean, the Currituck and Albemarle Sounds as well as various rivers and inlets. We have a diverse group of native plants and wildlife(some endangered), state and national parks, preserves, and refuges. Many organizations and agencies work together to protect our slice of paradise and we encourage you to always remember to care for and respect our fragile ecosystem… don’t destroy what you came to enjoy.
