With no street sign (or streets)...How do you find anything in Carova?

Carova Beach, Outer BanksNow to be fair, we do have streets. They just aren't paved. OK maybey some aren't "cut" either, and we do have a few with signs.  

Finding your way areond the 4-wheel drive beach of Carova, NC can be a little challenging (even to locals).  Here is a little cheat sheet to help you out.


To help you reference everything here is a little cheat sheet. Since the Outer Banks is so linear, we reference everything by mileposts. Also, on the 4-wheel drive beaches, most addresses line up with the mile posts (even numbers on the East side of the street and odd numbers on the West). So here is how things are laid out.


The pavement ends at roughly MP13. You emediatly have the Currituck Banks National Estuarine Preserve to drive around. The first house is at about MP14.5. The community of Swan Beach is roughly from MP15 - 17. You have another refuge from MP17-19. The community of North Swan Beach is from MP19 - 21. And last the community of Carova Beach isfrom 21 to the VA state line which is MP24.
