About The Park.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore spans most of the Outer Banks, from Wright Brothers National Memorial north of the seashore all the way down to Ocracoke Island - the southern extent of the seashore. Relax or play on sandy barrier island beaches, in the energetic Atlantic Ocean, or in the nurturing Pamlico Sound. Climb the historic Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island lighthouses. Discover the history of the area known as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” and the people who call this remote place home. Watch a variety of bird species migrate along the Atlantic Flyway. All this and more await you in America’s first national seashore!

Download the app before you arrive. Cell service and Wi-Fi are limited in Cape Hatteras.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Seashore in my pocket

Do you love Cape Hatteras and the Outer Banks? I'm amazed at just how much there is to discover about this special place right in this app. Now I can revisit some of my favorite places anytime I want, and have even found a couple new sites to explore! Thanks, National Park Service for helping me appreciate the coast even more! 😎🏖
