Fall is a great time to enjoy the beauty and nature of the Outer Banks. One of the best ways to get out and experience the wonders of the Outer Banks is Eco- Kayak Tours of the Outer Banks.

They are educational and offer unique tours like Howling with the Red Wolves, Bird watching in Pea Island, and exploring the maritime forests.

According to a recent USA Today Readers’ Choice contest found the Outer Banks one of North America’s “Best places to watch a sunset.” Of the Outer Banks, the review notes, “The East Coast is typically better known for its sunrises, but not so in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Set up your lawn chair facing west, and enjoy the show.”
Guests at the Nags Head Inn Oceanfront Hotel are able to enjoy both stunning sunrises over the oceanfront and some of the best sunsets on the water across the nearby Roanoke Sound.
You may already be aware that Jockeys Ridge State Park showcases the tallest naturally occurring sand dune on the East coast and a premier destination for kites plus hang gliding, but did you know it also has a near “perfect family beach” on the West side? Somewhat protected from the chilly Northeast, this West facing beach typically stays warm on into the autumn afternoons while the waters are very calm, safe and shallow … even hundreds of feet from shore. You won’t be catching any waves, but you may elect to paddle board, float or just play in calm, clean waters. To discover and explore, just Book Your Reservations Now at Nags Head Inn and once you are here, check-out the South Entrance to Jockeys Ridge State Park, across from the Kitty Hawk Connection Shopping Center … turning West on Soundside Road driving all the way back to Roanoke Sound, then turning Right into the public parking spaces by the beach. Of course, you can also hike back up the magnificent dunes from there or enter the park’s main North entrance on Carolista Drive at milepost 12 on Hwy 158 Bypass (South Croatan Hwy). There you will find facilities, displays and lots of interesting programs plus activities for the entire family to enjoy.
