Things to Do on Ocracoke: Beach Driving

Beach driving is definitely a fun thing to do on Ocracoke. However, you need to get a permit from the National Park Service and make certain that you’re in a 4WD vehicle that can maneuver in the deep sand. Believe us, you do not want to get your car or truck stuck on the beach. If your car is not suited to beach driving on Ocracoke Island, you can rent a Jeep or other 4x4 vehicle.
