There are nine on and off ramps between the beach and N.C. Highway 12, five of which provide four-wheel-drive access. The southern and northern ends of the beach, the areas most popular with surf fishermen, are open year-round to four-wheel-drive vehicles. The section of the beach between Ramp 70, by the airport, and Ramp 59, at the Hatteras ferry, is closed to vehicle traffic seasonally and has plenty of good spots for families with children and those looking for more solitude. Several threatened and endangered species, such as the piping plover and several species of sea turtles, nest on the island's beaches, and sections may be closed to the public in order to protect these nests.

We will pick you up if necessary from your location on the island.
