What to do with your pet in Outer Banks
There are ample opportunities to watch wildlife, go windsurfing, fishing, and swimming, and bring your four-legged friend along with you.
The soaring dunes, huge waves, and high winds of pristine Hatteras Island makes it a paradise for kiteboarders and surfers as well as swimmers. Luckily, the miles upon miles of beaches are also quite dog-friendly. You can bring your pooch along at any time of year, though they must remain leashed. You are also responsible for ensuring your dog does not disturb any wildlife.
Duck is one of the most beautiful villages on Bodie Island. Its seven-mile stretch of beaches are pet-friendly, though keep in mind you'll need to rent a vacation home with beach access. Once there however, your dog is permitted off-leash, so long as you keep an eye on him or her. The trails of the Duck Town Park, as well as the Boardwalk, meanwhile, are an activity your pup can join you for on-leash.
3. Ocracoke Island
Accessible only by water or air, the quaint fishing village is home to Ocracoke Lighthouse, the nation’s second-oldest lighthouse still in operation. It is also home to many beaches which you can visit with your dog all-year-round, so long as they are leashed.
