For the fisherman in the group, Jennette’s Pier is the place to be. Enjoy fishing from the pier with fishing rentals or even enjoy a lesson from an OBX local. You may even catch a glimpse of dolphins playing in the surf!
4. Coquina Beach Access
Our favorite beach access – and off the beaten path! Coquina Beach access is perfect for our guests. It’s a short distance from the White Doe Inn and more underdeveloped compared to other local beach accesses located in Kill Devil Hills or Nags Head. This means enjoying the beach so much closer to the way nature intended.

One of the largest remaining maritime woods is located here at Nags Head Woods Preserve, boasting over 550 species of plants and 150+ species of birds. Nature lovers convene here for trail walking, picnicking, and world-renowned bird watching.
