Ocracoke Island Things to Do: 24 reviews and 36 photos


Driving down to the OBX you will notice several different lighthouses. Each lighthouse has their own unique design. The Ocracoke lighthouse is all white, built in 1823 and is the 2nd oldest lighthouse in the US. Standing at a mere 75ft it is also the shortest and oldest of all in the OBX.

We were unable to go in and I don't think it is ever open to the public. A NPS ranger is there during the peak season to answer any questions.
