Seasonal Openings & Closings
The National Park Service closes certain beaches on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore during wildlife nesting seasons.
To make sure your beach of choice will be open during your scheduled vacation, visit nps.gov/caha; click “News” from the left-hand menu, then “News Releases.” Some restaurants and guided tours close in late fall, when the
weather turns cold and the number of visitors naturally gets smaller, so make a list of your picks and give them a quick
call before you go. You'll find plenty to do, even in the off-season, but you'll have a lot more fun if you know what your
options are in advance.
