Nothing in Ocracoke is far from the beach. Will take you approximately 5-10 minutes to drive to the lifeguard beach from your hotel, depending on how many golf carts and bikes you must maneuver around. There are other beautiful beaches farther up Route 12, but with no lifeguards.

If you have 4wheel drive you can drive on the Beach here but just a short drive to the Airport ramp and a walk over the ramp The Anchorage Inn, is a good choice . Very nice sun sets from there as well as a great location . You will enjoy your stay I am sure

It really isn't feasible to walk to the beach from Anchorage Inn.

We had a nice time, parked my son's Jeep on the beach (with a pass) so the guys could fish and I could get a sunburn! Enjoyed a nice boat ride, saw sea turtle and pelicans .Enjoyed all the restaurants.

It was a relaxing adventure, but we will go somewhere else next year.
