Outer Banks Vacation Rental

Jockey’s Ridge State Park

There's sand?! At the beach?!

Jockey’s Ridge State Park on the Outer Banks is the tallest living sand dune on the Atlantic coast.  It is a premier location for kites, sightseeing and sunsets.  The view arcs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Roanoke sound. A visitors center, with museum and exhibits, explains the dune’s ecology.  There is a 360ft boardwalk going out to the dune field.  Sandboarding is welcome with permit and hang-gliding is available through Kitty Hawk Kites. Shoes and sun protection are recommended. By calling ahead 24-hours in advance, it’s possible for mobility-impaired visitors to schedule a ride in our all-terrain-vehicle to the top of the dunes.  This is why it made the list!
