Cape Hatteras National Seashore is America’s first national seashore, established by the National Park Service in 1953 to preserve 70 miles of beautiful coastline that stretches from Rodanthe to Ocracoke Island that make up part of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. 

The Seashore is home to abundant and diverse flora and fauna and attracts millions of visitors from all over the world each year. It has been called “a place to engage your senses”!
