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!
