The town of Nags Head is one of the best vacation spots in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. It is the perfect location for a wide range of outdoor activities. Biking, hiking, hang gliding, and kite flying are particularly popular here, and Nags Head’s three piers make it a prime spot for fishing. But the beautiful beaches are more than a backdrop — they’re the main attraction.


At Kitty Hawk Watersports, we can help you make the most of your trip to the barrier islands, offering everything from jet ski rentals to parasailing excursions. Call us at (252) 441-2756 today and start making memories.

Getting Around Nags Head

Off the water, one of the best ways to see local attractions is to bike around town. Rent a bicycle from us, and ride to destinations including:

  • Jockey’s Ridge State Park — Famous for having the largest natural sand dune system on the East Coast, Jockey’s Ridge gives you a breathtaking vantage point to see the town, the ocean, and Roanoke Sound.
  • Bodie Island Lighthouse — Located just south of town, the historic lighthouse stands 156 feet tall. Climb to the top for the best view outside of parasailing.
  • Jennette’s Pier, Nags Head Pier, and Outer Banks Pier — Walk the piers to take in the refreshing sea breeze and watch the pelicans come and go. Or bring a pole for a relaxing day of fishing.
