High Tide travel along beach


I have been reading a lot about this 4x4 area. I am renting a house in Carova and wanted to know if there was a time that you could not drive on the beach? I do have a 4x4 and have some experience driving in sand, just not wet sand. If I am arriving late at night can I still make it to the house I am renting?

Check a tide chart and the moon phase. And the winds. You might have to run up high in the soft sand.

The wet sand along the ocean is easy part of the drive up to Carova.

If you don't have a tides app on your phone, you can create a tide chart here: Select Currituck Beach Light and go from there.


Good luck.
