North Carolina / Outer Banks / 4x4
Neighborhood of 4x4
Situated on the wonderfully unique 4x4 Beaches, Ocean Beach offers vacationing friends and families the opportunity to enjoy time together on the coast without the distractions of a bustling neighborhood environment. A four-wheel drive vehicle is needed to navigate the beaches where Ocean Beach rental homes are located. The southern-most community of the 4x4 Beaches, the oceanfront homes of Ocean Beach begin approximately 1.5 miles from the beach access ramp and stretch north for about a mile. While there are no roads, restaurants, or shops in Ocean Beach, what you will find is a breathtakingly beautiful & vast shoreline, roaming wild horses and a positively ideal vacation environment.
All the traditional tranquilities and familiar sights you love about the beach are found in Ocean Beach, along with a few unusual elements that make this area so special. Wild horses, protected nature preserves and vacationers and locals traveling the beaches to and from town are just a few. Guests often choose to drive their 4x4 vehicles down to the beach, park and enjoy a day of “tailgating” fun in the sun.
Penny’s Hill, on the northern end of Ocean Beach, offers guests an additional area to explore. The giant sand dune is located between the ocean and the sound. A climb to the top offers guests a unique opportunity to experience the panoramic natural beauty of the Outer Banks.
