By climbing up Jockey's Ridge you can see the ocean and the sound, giving you an awesome perspective of life on a sandbar. It's a must see!
Jockey's Ridge is an historic landmark and a really cool place to visit. There are areas where you can't see anything but sand, so it feels like you're on a desert. You can roll down the hills, fly kites and learn how to hang glide. Very fun!
Amazing sand dunes. Must see to believe. Also, check out the trails and the welcome center. Lots of very interesting facts and figures. All positive. There is nothing I disliked. My wife and I visited on a picture-perfect 68-degree fall day. Will definitely re-visit if given the opportunity. Amazing that this natural phenomenon exists on the East Coast!
I absolutely loved Jockey's Ridge. At first, I thought I was going to climb some dunes and be done. Boy, was a I wrong. I had an adventure and ended up exhausted and sunburned (I didn't realize how high up I'd be going). The views from the peak are breathtaking. Definitely explore and go to the bayside. When I went...

The view, the history, the ecology... a unique experience. Bring a kite, take the kids hang gliding (must have waivers - make plans at least a week in advance if your kids bring friends). Walk the trails, watch the sun rise or set.
Warm yellow sand, a warm hike, but definately worth it. Make sure to bring water! Drinks and bathrrom facilities at the entrance of the trail/hike.
The tallest sand dunes on the Atlantic Coast! This is THE spot to take time from a hectic life to watch the sun set. Beautiful and peaceful. Fly a kite while you wait. Bring something to sit on - and water. Walk barefoot in the soft sand. Onen of my favorite memories from the OBX.
