Ocracoke’s thirteen miles of unspoiled, pristine beaches are perfect for swimming, surfing, or just relaxing in the sun. Enjoy fishing, boating and kayaking on nearby Pamlico Sound. Each year families return to Ocracoke to soak up the natural beauty and to experience this special place in new and familiar ways. Park your car when you get here and walk, ride your bike, or rent a golf cart and tour around our small village community.
All the essentials are here and a lot more, but there are no shopping centers, fast food restaurants, or chain stores. Be sure to visit our island’s unique, locally owned shops and galleries – the local art is inspiring. The seafood is the freshest around whether you catch it yourself, buy it at one of the local seafood shops, or have it prepared by talented chefs in one of our outstanding local restaurants.
While you’re here be sure to visit magical Springer’s Point Nature Preserve. Walk through the pristine maritime forest and end up along a sandy beach on Pamlico Sound. Tune in to our local community radio station, WOVV, 90.1 FM, for local news, music and a great variety of locally produced shows. Enjoy the abundance of local musical talent, try parasailing over the sound, charter one of the local boats, or take an excursion to Portsmouth Island – there’s so much to explore and experience. We encourage you to also investigate other opportunities for local enrichment and involvement during your stay and, of course, to come back as often as you can.
All of us at Ocracoke Island Realty look forward to welcoming you and your family to our island paradise. Whether you’re a regular, or a first time visitor, you can expect a special vacation where you can explore and enjoy all that Ocracoke offers. So relax, unwind, experience our island’s charm and let Ocracoke work its wonder.
