Based on 19 reviews

Currituck Banks is an excellent example of an undisturbed barrier island and low-salinity estuarine system. The site encompasses 965 acres, stretching from sea to sound. Take a walk on the handicap-accessible elevated boardwalk through the maritime forest, enjoying nature's sites and sounds along the way. Colorful interactive signs line the boardwalk as it leads you to a spectacular view of the Currituck Sound. Or take the unbeaten path along the primitive trail to the sound.

Please check our website for site-access limitations.
