Shoulder Season Vacations

Ocracoke’s “off” season: the perfect time to join us.

Ocracoke Island in the spring and the fall is in some ways even better than in the summer months. With fewer tourists and plenty of opportunities for fun and reserving beautiful accommodations, why wait til summer?

Wonderful weather, miles of beach to yourself, low rates—though some call it our “off  season,” and some consider it our shoulder season, no matter what you call it, the locals will tell you it’s the time to come to Ocracoke Island. Traditionally, you’ll find our waters still warm enough for wading, surfing, and swimming, with a cool breeze while you ride your bike or golf cart through the picturesque streets of Ocracoke Village.

All the activities you expect to enjoy during the summer are also available in the spring and fall. Vacation rental and hotel rates are generally much less expensive during these months, with the local restaurants, grocery stores, and gift stores less busy and generally (with a few exceptions) open to visitors. It’s the best time to get to know a few locals and really get into that Ocracoke Island vibe.
