Cape Hatteras Beach Closures Start Again

All beaches within the Cape Hatteras National Seashore are now closed to off-road vehicles in the late night and early morning hours.

The beaches are closed between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily beginning Saturday as part of a consent decree designed to protect breeding shorebirds and sea turtle nests. The closure will remain in effect until November 15th.

Other closures will be in effect depending on where breeding areas and nests are found.
