Seeing the horses

Beautiful scenery, loved seeing the horses. So cool that you can drive right on the beach. Took the horse tour and was driven all over the beach to find the horses.

The 4x4 beaches of Carova are beautiful and great for families. We saw horses around our house and on the beaches every day of our stay and the beaches were never overcrowded. Be sure to have a good 4x4 vehicle with adequate ground clearance as driving on the beaches can be challenging at times, but the tranquility is worth the... More

The beach was beautiful, peaceful and it made for an enjoyable time with friends. Reading and playing in the water. If you haven't done it it is a must!!

To see wild horses enjoying the beach?? It doesn't get much better. They are beautiful animals. The beach itself is wonderful. Soft sand, refreshing water and driving on it in a 4x4 makes it an even cooler experience. Our teens loved the week we spent here.

Pretty far off the beaten track, but the benefit is the nature and its surroundings and NO traffic! Just you and the sea. Well worth staying out there.

This is a great place to take the family and just get away from it all. Just let some air out of your tires and drive as far as you want to go, get your picnic and fishing gear out and relax away from the crowd and enjoy.

Our family of 10 made the huge mistake of choosing Twiddy to rent a house in the OuterBanks. We've been there before but not with Twiddy. It wqs a nightmare--they get all your money upfront on-line and then hold you hostage. Our house was dirrty, full of bugs, and had a kitchen out of Psycho. We probably made a dozen... More

Drop tire air pressure to 15 pounds per tire. Easy to drive out and no need to lug a bunch of stuff to the beach. Drive down the beach about two miles, pick an open spot and pull out the beach chairs.
