“What fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Great place to hike, picnic, fly kites or sit on the dunes. Beautiful place to watch sunset! It is free! You can spend hours here! It is an amazing place to be in awe of God's creation!

“Climb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Nice for a change of pace on the outer banks. Take the trail and climb the dunes for a nice view of the sound. If you keep to the wet sand, it's easier hiking....ha ha

“Take the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

If you enjoy the spectacular things about the USA then you need to see the dunes at Jockey's Ridge. Start walking through the sand and you will experience what the Outer Banks was once all about. A great experience for all ages. Take a kite to fly!

“Fun in the Sand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

It was enjoyable to walk on the dunes and get the feeling of what it's like in a desert. There are great views of both the ocean and the sound if you get to the top of the big dunes. Kids can play in the sand, fly kites, or just roll down the hills. And, it all FREE!

“Huge Sand Dune!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is the biggest sand dune on the East Coast. It is worth the visit just to view how impressive it is. It's also a good place to try hanggliding.
