One of the Wild Horses of Corolla
Currituck's northern Outer Banks stretches 11 miles north of the Corolla area.  There are no paved roads in this area and visitors must take a four wheel drive vehicle on the beach to reach communities such as Swan Beach, North Swan Beach, and Carova Beach.  Less than 200 people live in these communities year-round, bu the area has become a very popular "day beach" for visitors to Corolla and the Outer Banks.
This is the area of the Outer Banks where the "Corolla Wild Horses" roam and pictures of guests that encounter these Spanish Mustangs have been posted here on Everything Outer Banks many times.

Editors of Coastal Living selected a total of 20 beaches to compete for the top spot.

Congratulations to the Currituck Outer Banks for their national recognition!

All the best from the beach!
