Unfortunately we have no control over the schedule so we apologize for any inconvenience of having the dredging contractors working on or near the Nags Head Inn oceanfront at this time. They may or may not be finished on schedule and this is beyond our control, but when they are finished we will certainly have one of the largest oceanfront beaches on the Outer Banks!  You can contact us if you have any questions. We will update our site soon with any news. Thank you!
