Nags Head Beach Nourishment Guest Notice

According to the Beach Nourishment Project Progress Reports on the Town of Nags Head’s website, beach nourishment is scheduled to be complete in front of the Nags head Inn by the end of the day Monday, August 22nd. 

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! 


Nags Head Beach Nourishment

Nags Head’s Beach Nourishment project entails the dredging and placement of 4.6 million cubic yards of sand, that will be placed on 10 miles of Nags Head’s beach, from Bonnett Street at Mile Post 11 south to the town line at Mile Post 21. (For comparison, the emergency berm installed after Hurricane Isabel only used 353,000 cubic yards of sand.)The $36 million project will be funded solely through Town and County monies as federal funds have never been made available to Nags Head.

The beach nourishment project will advance the shoreline up to 200 feet in front of the Nags Head Inn! This is amazing because the Nags Head Inn already has one of the largest oceanfront beaches of any outer banks hotels. The Nags Head Inn Oceanfront Hotel beach will be over 100,000 square feet! That is 1000 square feet per room!
