Welcome to Currituck County - North Carolina's Land of Opportunity. Nestled between the Hampton Roads, VA metropolitan area and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Currituck County has a close proximity to culture, commerce and leisure leading to many opportunities for entertainment and employment. Recreational opportunities on our waterways abound, making Currituck County a true "Sportsman's Paradise".

People from all over northeast North Carolina and Virginia are lured to the lush fairways, water view, reasonable prices, and uncrowded conditions of the Currituck County golf courses. Six 18-hole courses are on the mainland and the Currituck Outer Banks hosts one course with some of the most beautiful vistas of any golf course along the East Coast.

The Currituck Sound, a shallow, grassy body of brackish water stretching 35 miles long and 4 to 15 miles wide, supports a variety of waterfowl and also supports healthy populations of fish and crabs. Families love to crab from docks in the sound, and anglers can be seen fishing from boats on the sound. Surf fishing at the ocean is also popular. Guides for fishing and hunting are available. A fishing license is required for the Currituck Sound, and may be obtained at any tackle shop.

The opportunities for outdoor activity are incredible in Currituck County, and fun isn't limited to the beach or golf course. The Currituck Sound supports numerous activities: kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, and boating. The shallow sound makes it easy to learn sports like windsurfing, but it requires that motor boats and sailboats have a very shallow draft. Kayak eco-tours and parasailing are offered on the Currituck Outer Banks. Off-the-water activities include bird-watching, hiking, off-road driving, and biking. Of interest to birders and wildlife enthusiasts are an Audubon Sanctuary at Pine Island, the 4WD area north of Corolla, and the Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge at Knotts Island.
