Hey 12

You can drive along the ocean if you have a 4 wheel dr. vehicle. If you do not have 4 wheel dr. DO Not attempt.

Love the wild horses!! Got to see them 3 different days while we were staying very close! We could walk from our beach through the gate onto the four-wheel-drive beach.. The highlight of my trip!

Wild horses, big houses, nice beach. Just be sure you travel during low tide if you want to keep your back in place, and use a well marked entry from beach to back roads.

Carova Beach is a secluded beach with some beach houses on sand streets. It's only accessible by 4WD and is a delightful retreat. Wild Spanish Mustangs roam freely and provide many photo ops. They have been protected and do not come near people for handouts. There is a fine for getting within 50 ft of them or feeding them. The... More

We were here in April 2017 - so off season. we rented a jeep and drove the beach and "town" ourselves looking to see some of the wild horses. We did find a few, so were happy about that! What a great experience, had never done it before!

Be sure to explore the area and find the wild horses. Make sure you abide by the rules and keep at least 50 ft... More

We took a wild horses tour in this area. The beach is huge and long and simply beautiful. Nice soft clean sand. Great area. You can ride your vehicle on it if you want.

We've been going to The OBX for over 30 years now and to Carova Beach for the last 16 after we started buying 4 WDs (Go Jeep Rubicons!!) and driving on the beach! When I discovered the horses running off the dunes and frolicking in the ocean water, I was completely taken in! They entertained us for over an hour... More

We take our own 4 wheel drive vehicle out to see the horses we have seen them both times we've been. For us an hour hour and a half is plenty. It is beautiful there! Stay 50 ft away from the horses it's the law.
