The best view on the island! Climb the historic lighthouse steps for spectacular view of Atlantic and the island below. For an extra special experience get a ticket to climb it at night during the full moon ( only available during the summer).

A bit of a ride, but worth the trip. Besides seeing one of the most famous lighthouses in the world, you will also drive over Oregon Inlet over to beautiful Pea Island.

World famous light house that was relocated a few years back. It was quite the undertaking. Lots of information about the lights on the outer banks.
