Hero: Cape Lookout
small-aa Icon

Fresh salty air, the low rumble of the mighty Atlantic Ocean's surf, and a pristine undeveloped beach await you at Cape Lookout. Uninhabited and reachable only by a small ferry that runs just a few times a day, it is the perfect spot for secluded beachcombing, camping, fishing, bird watching, and shelling. The distance from one end to the other takes all day to drive. There are several historical sights, such as the namesake lighthouse and the Historical Village that once was home to troops staging for their trip to Europe in World War II. It is the perfect location to spend several days relaxing, decompressing, and reconnecting with the most essential things in life.
