North Carolina / Outer Banks / 4x4
Neighborhood of 4x4
On the north side of the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge, there are a few prestigious homes in Swan Island Estates. These homes are located just south of North Swan Beach, approximately 5.9 miles from the access ramp.
A four-wheel-drive vehicle is needed to access vacation homes in this area, as there are no roads and guests must drive up the beach. There are no stores or shops on the 4x4 beaches. Vacationers and locals alike must “head into town” to Corolla for necessities.
This uniquely wonderful area of the Outer Banks provides an ideal backdrop for guests seeking a more adventuresome beach getaway, void of commercial distractions. Beautiful wide beaches, a peaceful nature reserve and roaming wild horses are just a few of this magical stretch’s interestingly paired attributes. Because of this fairly removed setting, Swan Island Estates vacation homes are the perfect place to spend quality time with family and friends.
