Destination guide

Take the road less traveled to Carova Beach

The very definition of 'off the beaten track', the remote North Carolina coastal community of Carova Beach is only accessible by 4x4 or boat, with no paved roads connecting it to the nearby town of Corolla. Famously one of North America's most secluded beaches, it's also among the most spectacular _ a dramatic expanse of golden sand, where wild horses can often be sported roaming alongside the sun-worshippers, swimmers, and shell-collectors. Carova Beach vacation rentals range from compact condos to opulent beachfront houses, so you can tailor your getaway to your precise needs.

Things to do

Kid-friendly fun in Carova Beach

For a thrill-packed family day out near Carova Beach vacation rentals, head to H20BX, a state-of-the-art waterpark stuffed with twisting flumes, nerve-shredding slides, shimmering pools, and colorful kids' rides. For more youngster-friendly fun, visit the Outer Banks Children @ Play Museum. This immersive attraction allows children to charter a fishing boat, work a shift in a teddy bear hospital, and test their balance skills through interactive games. And swing by the Wild Horse Museum to learn all about the herd of wild mustangs you may have spotted hanging out on the beach.


Life on the open waves at Carova Beach

Base yourself in a Carova Beach vacation rental, and you'll have the deep blue Atlantic Ocean as your own adventure playground. Carova, and indeed the whole string of narrow barrier islands that make up the Outer Banks, is a world-renowned sport fishing hotspot, with the local crystal-clear waters teeming with yellowfin tuna, mahi mahi, wahoo, marlin, and other highly-prized catches. Ocean breezes and crashing waves often provide ideal conditions for adrenalin-pumping activities like surfing and kiteboarding. If you'd rather take in your sensational surroundings at a gentle pace, hire a kayak or paddle board and explore the coastline at your leisure.


Sunny summer days on Carova Beach

Carova Beach vacation rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer months of June to August. The weather at this time is generally hot and dry, with plenty of sunshine. Winters, by contrast, can be chilly, although much milder than many other regions of the United States. Spring and fall are perhaps the best times to visit, with more space to yourself thanks to fewer out-of-towners, and agreeably warm weather, ideal for outdoor pursuits like fishing, windsurfing and kiteboarding.
