Currituck Beach Lighthouse

Currituck Beach Lighthouse towers above the northern Outer Banks in the historic Corolla Village. The last brick and mortar lighthouse built in North Carolina, its unpainted red brick served as a daymarker to distinguish it from other coastal lighthouses. The Currituck Beach Lighthouse is a first order lighthouse, having the largest of seven Fresnel lens sizes. With a 20-second flash cycle the light can be seen from 18 nautical miles away. Upon entering, you will find exhibits interpreting the history and significance of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse; its role in cultural and maritime history on the Outer Banks is robust. Climbing the Currituck Beach Lighthouse is always rewarding; at the top, you're gretted with expansive views of the Currituck Sound, Atlantic Ocean, and the northern Outer Banks. 

Self guided tours will take 5-20 minutes up the 220 steps to the top!
