OBX Beach Information
The Outer Banks beaches are recognized as being some of the best on the East Coast. Here community life is centered around the beach. Also referred to as “The OBX”, the Outer Banks is a 130-mile stretch of islands just off the coast of North Carolina. The Hockman Beach house is conveniently located in the Northern Beach area of the OBX in Kill Devil Hills, NC. You’ll have easy access to Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head Beaches from our cottage. There’s plenty of beach to explore and a lot uncrowded space, so you’ll enjoy the sounds of the crashing waves over anything else! Both Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk beaches are known for great surfing and skimboarding. These beaches are usually known for having the biggest waves among the Northern Beaches.
Dragonfly Dunes is situated within easy walking distance to the local beach, where you can enjoy a host of water sports and spectacular sunsets.
