A paved 14-mile drive across quiet Ocracoke Island, once a hangout of the pirate Blackbeard. This short scenic drive crosses Ocracoke Island of the Outer Banks. Except for the small, quaint village of Ocracoke, almost the entire island is part of Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Industrial tourism hasn’t yet arrived at Ocracoke. There are miles of beaches and lots of marshes important to wildlife. The Ocracoke Lighthouse is the oldest operating in North Carolina. Special attractions: Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Ocracoke Lighthouse, Silver Lake Harbor, Hatteras–Ocracoke Ferry, Cedar Island– Ocracoke Ferry, Ocracoke-Swan Quarter Ferry, Ocracoke ponies, beaches, fishing, swimming, boating, and hiking. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
