When many people think of Ocracoke they think only of our beautiful beaches. Of course, there is much more to this island. In addition to our award-winning Atlantic coast beach we have miles and miles of pristine sound side shoreline with marshes and shallow water teeming with life. This view is of Pamlico Sound, and was taken from the Hammock Hills Nature Trail.

    Funny you happened to mention the salt marsh.I have been coming to ocracoke for 40 years for one purpose....the marsh. My main fun thing that I bring with me is not a surfboard or beach chair (I hardly go on the beach)'s my microscope. Each to their own and I am usually alone in the marsh can spend a lifetime there and still discover something new

    so few comments. this ecosystem is worth millions. millions in dollars of nature's natural barrier protecting the economy on the mainland. the marsh is the buffer in a hurricane tidal surge. they , the mainland should pay OI to save the marsh keep it marsh forever. What has Nature ever done for us? A lot!!!
