Hyde County's Outer Banks Resort Island

Ocracoke Island, accessible only by water or air, is part of Hyde County. It is one of the barrier islands of the Outer Banks of North Carolina where the pirate Blackbeard is known to have once roamed. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore, with the Pamlico Sound on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, its 16 miles of sun-swept wilderness beaches offer something for everyone. Whether you'd like to swim, fish, surf, or just improve your tan, this is the place to visit. Camping facilities are available with two local campgrounds as well as the National Park Service. Dozens of boats are also available for charter fishing.
