It is an awesome place.. Just be prepared. No stores, no gas. All wheel drive wont get it done if your not carful. Great place to relax and get away from it all.

“Who knew?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

This place was amazing. We did a guided tour with W.H.A.T. And it was worth it. I never knew there were beach roads! A whole community/town only accessible via driving along a "road" on the beach. The experience of how this community exists is worth the price of the tour. We did see wild horses meandering about in lawns, in the roads but seeing this beach town was a totally unexpected plus to the tour.

“Great beach for four wheels or four hooves!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

If you can drive a four wheeler safely, without speeding or getting stuck this is the place to see beautiful water, beach and wild horses. Fun-Fun-Fun!

“Beware of this "beach"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This is not the place to go if you have children! Speeding suvs day and night! There are two sets of lanes in front of you and behind you on beach. We were mislead because it was the off-season that traffic would be light but it was the opposite. Can't take chairs to the water can't set up a tent close to water. The speed limit is supposed to be 15 mph around people well nobody obeys that. When the sheriiff stops daily to tell you that your chairs are in wrong place ask him if anyone obeys speed limit. He told me "watch your kids very closely it's the off-season and people driving fast and crazy". The beach is just a roadway and most days completely full of tire tracks. I love OBX but if you want a relaxing beach stay DON'T go there. If you want to dodge 4lanes of 40mph traffic on beach all day then do go to Carava beach. You've been warned. Realty companies will lie to you but we lived it.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We went on a tour! It was a cold, blustery trip, but well worth it. The wild horses are beautiful! They are fairly well protected. For the first hour, we just saw houses! But, then it started----just one sweet horse after the next, grouped together feasting on the greenery in the area!
We really enjoyed this opportunity to view these fabulous creatures and we hope they will be protected and free for many years to come!
