Ocracoke Island features a wide variety of things to do, even during the off season.  Photo by Kevin AdkinsYou may know what we're talking about too. It's a lazy kind of off-season escape... WITHOUT THE CROWDS... where you can literally kick off your shoes and wiggle your toes in clean Ocracoke Island sand. You can wear the most comfortable clothes you own and snooze as late as you like or rise with the sun to go after the catch of the day on an Atlantic Ocean or Pamlico Sound fishing charter. Its a kind of Outer Banks barrier island vacation escape where you can toss your worries out to sea, soak up the pristine beauty of a national seashore and really and truly UNWIND in a comfortable vacation cottage.

Dr. Stephen Leatherman, aka Dr. Beach, calls Ocracoke Island his favorite getaway beach.

"Ocracoke is a special place; it is my favorite getaway beach. Here you will find some of the finest, wild beaches in the country, and the water quality is at the top of the charts as there is literally nothing way out there to pollute it. The main pursuits are swimming (best at Airport Beach area), shelling (especially on the north end), and general beachcombing along the 16-mile long shore."

Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman
