Beach parking permits now required in Corolla

Currituck County’s new beach parking permit requirement went into effect Thursday, May 25, for beachgoers who wish to park vehicles on the four-wheel drive beach in Corolla.

Permits may be obtained at the Moyock Welcome Center and Corolla Visitors Center.  For more information, call Currituck Tourism at 252-435-2947 or visit www.ParkingOnTheBeach.com

Currituck County’s air down ordinance for beach driving is also in effect.

Motorists are required to air down their tires before accessing the four-wheel drive beach in Corolla. Air pressure should not exceed 20 p.s.i. To air down, motorists should pull over at the public beach access facility on Corolla Village Road.

After leaving the beach, motorists may inflate tires at the new air stations installed in Historic Corolla Park, in the front parking lot near the park’s main entrance.
