Currituck Banks is an excellent example of an undisturbed barrier island and low-salinity estuarine system. The site encompasses 954 acres stretching from sea to sound. Take a walk on the handicap accessible elevated boardwalk through the maritime forest enjoying natures 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.
