Barrier islands make for exceptional summer destinations, and the Outer Banks are no exception. Situated off the coasts of North Carolina and Virginia, these islands contain not only a bountiful beachfront, but also some history. One of the islands, Roanoke, is infamous for having been home to an English colony that mysteriously vanished. The Wright brothers’ momentous and initial flight also took place here.

Your visit to the Outer Banks will likely be less historic, but there’s still plenty to do across the islands Ocracoke, Hatteras, Roanoke and Bodie. Here are a few properties where you can enjoy all the beachfront delights this area has to offer, especially Kill Devil Hills, an area we’ve concentrated on here.
