North of Corolla are the beaches known as “The 4×4 Beaches”, where you can only travel with 4 wheel drive vehicles. This area stretches 11 miles from the hard road in Corolla to the Virginia state line. The beaches included in this section are Ocean Beach, Seagull Beach, Swan Beach, Swan Island Estates, North Swan Beach and Carova Beach.
You need a four wheel drive vehicle to reach these vacation rental homes, as you actually drive on the beach. Along the way you will see the very unique 4×4 beaches with maritime forest and wide open spaces. The roads are all sand and exciting to drive with your 4×4 wheels. You will see the famous wild horses almost daily. Make sure to stop by the grocery stores to get your supplies before you hit the end of the pavement.
This is truly an off road and partly off the grid vacation. These homes are for the adventurous and wild at heart.
