The Story

Here is a long view down the scenic Nags Head beach in the Outer Banks at Nags Head. In the popular tourist areas in the Outer Banks such as Nags Head, they work hard to maintain their miles of great-looking beaches through constant grooming and controlling beach erosion with extensive fencing. There are nightly crews grooming the sand with rakes pulled by Jeeps, so there is a lot of ongoing work done toward that appearance.

Because of that maintenance, the classic ocean surf views, and modern beach house rental housing, Nags Head beach is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Outer Banks in North Carolina.

Nags Head is nationally known for having the largest natural sand dunes on the eastern shore. Nearby Jockey’s Ridge State Park offers a wonderful overlook of the ocean and Nags Head from the top of giant dunes.

The tourist town of Nags Head is situated on Bodie Island and the scenic Bodie Island Lighthouse is not far away. Close by is the town of Kitty Hawk where the Wright brothers first successfully flew a powered airplane for the first time in December 1903.
