Most of Cape Hatteras National Seashore beaches remain open for the purpose of staying healthy while following federal, state and county guidelines to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Beachgoers can help keep these areas open by staying at least 6 feet from each other and by not creating a gathering of 10 or more people in a single location. Additionally, vehicles on the beach should be parked roughly 20 feet apart.

Adequate social distancing is easily achievable as there are currently over 59 miles of ocean-facing beaches open in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
