Currituck Beach Lighthouse

Built in 1875, the Currituck Beach Lighthouse was the last of four beacons positioned from Cape Henry, Virginia to Cape Hatteras, filling the “dark spot” on North Carolina’s coast. The lighthouse stands 162 feet tall, and its light can be seen from 19 miles away. Groups can climb the 214 steps all the way to the top of the lighthouse to see breathtaking views of the surrounding area below. On the way up to the top of the lighthouse, groups will find exhibits about its history, which also provide an opportunity to rest before continuing up each flight of stairs. Reservations for groups must be made at least 3 weeks in advance.
