Located at the southernmost tip of North Carolina's Outer Banks, Ocracoke Island is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and boasts almost 16 miles of pristine, undeveloped beaches. Accessible only by Ferry, private boat or plane, Ocracoke is a oasis for the family, casual tourist, nature lover, fisherman, or recreational boater.
A historic fishing village turned tourist attraction, the village of Ocracoke is home to the island's 800 year round residents and offers all the conveniences and services of a modern vacation destination with the laid back attitude of a place lost in time.
We invite you to explore all that Ocracoke has to offer.
Visit our shops, eat fresh seafood at our restaurants, enjoy the unique creations of island artists and craftsmen, and discover Ocracoke's rich history. Or simply, enjoy one of our spectacular sunsets from the deck of your island accommodations.
Relax. Slow down. Sit for a spell on the store porch. Rent a bike or a kayak for an afternoon excursion to the lighthouse or around Silver Lake Harbor. Take a boat tour or go hunting with one of our local guides. Wait for the boats to pull up to the docks with flounder, crabs or clams or catch your own dinner. You will be rewarded with a sense of history, as well as a feeling of peace and calm.
