A 50 minute ferry ride, but miles away from the mainland or even Hatteras village…. 16 miles of pristine windswept beaches on this barrier island famous for sun, sand and serenity. Ocracoke village, a fishing village at the southern end of the island features a diverse variety: the national park visitors center, a museum, good local restaurants & bars (no chains allowed), artsy shops mixed in with t-shirt shops, the Outer Banks oldest lighthouse and the point where Blackbeard was beheaded, plus the ferry.
