Nags Head Activities & Programs

Including Kitty Hawk & Kill Devil Hills

Unlike a couple of decades ago when activities and events on the beach only happened between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head now keep locals and visitors alike busy and entertained year round. Sure, you come to the Outer Banks for just that – the banks, the beach, the surf and sand. But you’d probably acknowledge that you come here for reasons beyond that. Nags Head activities (including Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills) are fun and many of those offered can only be done on the Outer Banks. It’d be silly to pass them up when there are so many things to do, places to go and skills to learn. Nags Head activities can be as familiar as going to a gym or they can be as exotic as taking surfing, paddleboarding and kiteboarding lessons. You can tour around the Outer Banks on a kayak paddle trip or even rent a bike or a jeep for some onshore cruising. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye out for Nags Head events that are happening during your visit. You could participate in a restaurant tour to find a couple of favorites to visit again for dinner one night or join a volleyball game on the beach, there’s an activity for everyone.

While most Nags Head activities are open to all ages, a handful of camps are also available for kids and teenagers to learn skills, like surfing, while getting a chance to hang out with people of the same age. You can also sign up for lessons for the whole family. Laugh with your loved ones as you wipe out and applaud each other’s victories as everyone catches their first wave. Check out the below listings and start getting excited for all of the fun activities waiting for you.
