South Nags Head

Surround Yourself with Outer Banks Scenery
Enjoy this secluded ribbon of vacation homes.

South Nags Head begins at Milepost 17, commonly known as Whalebone Junction, and is the furthest point south on the central beaches of the Outer Banks. The area is in part, connected with the Pea Island National Refuge, and sections of this area are federally protected, so there is very little commercial development. 

Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge to the west, this area only offers a long ribbon of vacation homes and smaller condos. There are no stores, restaurants or shopping in South Nags Head, just miles of beach and a paved, multi-use path. The multi-use path stretches the five-miles that spans South Nags Head and is perfect for walking, biking, dog walking and rollerblading. The lack of commercial development in this area means the beaches are wide and uncrowded.

Sun Realty is proud to represent vacation homes in South Nags Head and the properties offered by Sun Realty range in size from ocean and sound front condos to larger, OBX rentals.

PLEASE NOTE: The Town of Nags Head declared in 2014 that unattended personal items must be removed from the beach between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m., and that Ocean Rescue and Emergency personnel could make sure that tents and canopies placed were not obscuring lifeguard stands’ line of sight. In 2018,  an amendment was added that states that tents and canopies on the beach can now no longer be taller than 9 feet high and must be spaced at least 10 feet apart. Additionally, they cannot be larger than 12 feet by 12 feet. Please respect these rules and assist Ocean Rescue in their ability to see and monitor all activity on the beach and in the ocean.

*The Town of Nags Head will be conducting a beach renourishment project, scheduled to begin in May 2019 through Fall 2019. Plans call for sand to be placed on 10 miles of beach from the Bonnett Street public beach access near Mile Post 11 south to the town line with the National Park Service near Mile Post 21. The project is likely non-linear in progression. Please visit MoreBeachToLove.com for schedule updates and answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
