4x4 Beaches

The fun begins where the asphalt ends on this untamed stretch of Outer Banks shoreline just south of the Virginia border. There are absolutely no paved roads. The area is known collectively as “The 4x4 Beaches” and accessible by four-wheel-drive vehicles only, this truly unique area provides the perfect vacation venue for families seeking a more adventurous getaway. You’ll have to head back down the beach for shopping & dining. One of the last and least developed areas of the Outer Banks, the 4x4 beaches feature wide, soft sand beaches and roaming wild horses. Homes range from two to 23 bedrooms and extend a wide variety of amenities; oceanfront to canalfront. This is the perfect place to reconnect with family and friends.
