Exploring lighthouses is a popular thing to do in Corolla, NC, as well as throughout the Outer Banks. Corolla is home to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, the last lighthouse built in this area. This distinguished red-brick structure towers 162-feet tall. It was operated by keepers who lived on-site until 1937, when it became automated. The lighthouse is open to visitors seasonally, and from the top, it offers uncontested views of the ocean, sound, stretch of island and the Currituck mainland. A picturesque village of keepers’ cottage and outbuildings surrounds lighthouse, with one serving as a Museum Shop and the other as a private residence.
