Driving on the beach with a 4-wheel drive off-road vehicle (ORV) is one of the very unique aspects of the Cape Hatteras National Recreational Seashore. Effective March 15, the National Park Service is requiring the purchase of permits to drive on the beach. For information on the permit costs and related park service rules, visit Cape Hatteras Beach Driving Permits.
A Bill has been introduced that would help beach access. If driving on the beach is important to you, YOU can help preserve beach access.
