Ocracoke Island sunsets are spectacular. So it’s no surprise that watching the sunset is one of our favorite Ocracoke Island activities. Depending on where you are on the island, you will experience a different view of the sky, the water, and the landscape.
Beachcombing is a way of life on Ocracoke, and shelling, beach driving, and shore fishing are a fun part of every Ocracoke vacation. You can easily access the beach just outside of Ocracoke Village.
Built in 1823, the Ocracoke Light is the oldest lighthouse in North Carolina still in continuous service and the second oldest in the United States in continuous service.
