Here Is The Most Remote, Isolated Spot In North Carolina And It’s Positively Breathtaking

Ocracoke Island has long been considered one of the most remote, isolated islands on the Outer Banks. Unlike the other rival, Portsmouth Island, Ocracoke is beautifully alone yet still home to creature comforts to make a weekend away a possible feat. Ocracoke can only be reached by three public ferries (two of which are toll ferries) or boat or private plane. It seems the 500 or so year-round inhabitants do indeed live a million miles away from it all.
