Lying just east of the North Carolina mainland are the barrier islands that comprise the famed Outer Banks. Cape Lookout National Seashore protects the southern-most section of this barrier island system. Running from Ocracoke Inlet on the northeast to Beaufort Inlet on the southeast, the three undeveloped barrier islands which make up the seashore - North Core Banks, South Core Banks and Shackleford Banks - may seem barren and isolated but they offer many natural and historical features that make a visit memorable.
