Kitty Hawk - wide, natural beaches and gorgeous blue-green Atlantic water.
Once called “Chickahauk” by the native Indians, some believe Kitty Hawk is the closest English pronunciation of the Indian phrase meaning “goose hunting grounds”.
One of the largest Outer Banks communities, Kitty Hawk is the vacation destination for thousands of vacationers each year. Wide, natural beaches and clean Atlantic water of gorgeous blue-green invite visitors to come, relax and forget about the world. The spectacular East Coast sun greets early risers as it emerges above the glassy Atlantic, disturbed only by the dorsal fins of passing dolphins. Quiet evenings in moonlit Kitty Hawk, cooled by mild ocean breezes and hushed by breaking waves, are ideal for shoreline strolling.
