This attractive Outer Banks beach area offers visitors plenty of recreational amenities and some of the most beautiful ocean front views in North Carolina. Home to a large number of attractive features in the area, Kill Devil Hills Beach offers its 7,000 year-round residents and visitors alike, plenty of reasons to enjoy their summer vacations.
From fishing and crabbing to peaceful seaside cycling or snorkeling, there are endless options for tourists to savor their retreat. Not to mention the fact that on-leash dogs can enjoy the premises. From mid-September to mid-May, there are certain restrictions regarding pet access, but at all other times, Fido can enjoy a relaxing walk along the shoreline as well.
Owners can delight in mesmerizing Atlantic views and silky sands, go swimming or surfing, build sandcastles, or go picnicking in the area’s natural landscapes and village-like appeal. They can also visit the nearby National Memorial honoring Wilbur and Orville Wright, go on a Seascape Golf challenge or see the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site and the Elizabeth Gardens, located just 17 miles to the southwest.
At the times when they are allowed on public beaches, dogs need to be under the complete control of their owners, although aiding pets are permitted all year round. The pet owners are asked to clean up after their furry companions, to keep the beach areas in pristine condition. At the same time, visitors should consider bringing water along for both them and their pets, and make sure their dogs are “mannered” enough to socialize appropriately with other animals nearby.
Kill Devil Hills Beach is a great way to enjoy the Outer Banks’ natural landscapes alongside your four-legged companion. There are plenty of fun activities available for both dogs and their handlers, whether it is surfing, snorkeling or simply watching the ocean or walking along the shoreline.
