“WOW!!!! Thanks OBSE for a spectacular Storm the Beach. When my teenager looks at me and says "I can't wait to do this again next year", then you know you have done something right!!!!!! Thanks for a great Sunday morning at the beach. Storm the Beach was the best time I have ever had while "running" and I uses that term loosely! Thanks again to OBSE and to ALL the volunteers who supported us today! You guys rock!! :)”

Ocracoke Island Lighthouse

Ocracoke Island Lighthouse

The Ocracoke Island Lighthouse may not be the most imposing of the Outer Banks lighthouses, but as North Carolina's oldest lighthouse in operation, (and the second oldest in the United States), it is certainly one of the most beloved. At just 65' ft. tall, it is by far the smallest lighthouse on the Outer Banks, but it still towers over the 4 square miles of Ocracoke Village, and its beacon can be spotted up to 14 miles into the Pamlico Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.
