If you have not explored the many beautiful maritime forests on the Outer Banks, you need to lace up your shoes and head out to explore the beauty! Majestic live oaks, magnolias and dogwoods all teaming with wildlife to take you to a place unlike any other. Pockets of maritime forests still occur along the entire chain of North Carolina's barrier islands, from Currituck banks in the North, to Bald Head Island in the South. What a magical place, these island forests. What a great time to visit them also as we begin to cool down for the season. A place to slow down, a place for peace and reflection. Make a trip to just one of the Outer Banks maritime forests and you will see why they are such a large, natural attraction.
