Ramada Plaza Nags Head Beach - Kill Devil Hills, NC

Stay at Ramada Plaza Nags Head Beach in Outer Banks, NC. Dates Available into May.

Oceanfront Hotel Close to Historic Attractions

The tallest lighthouse in the United States is situated on Cape Hatteras, one of many barrier islands that make up the Outer Banks off the coast of North Carolina. Nearby, you can find the spot where the Wright brothers took flight for the first time, in Kill Devil Hills (not in Kitty Hawk, contrary to what's in many textbooks). Today, the Outer Banks are popular for their history as well as their temperate climate and wide-open beaches. The Ramada Plaza Nags Head Beach sits right along the oceanfront, close to all of these attractions.

You can spend the day lounging on the hotel's expansive beach, or go bicycling or surfing with equipment rented from a shop nearby. When not swimming in the Atlantic, you can take advantage of the hotel's indoor pool. The onsite restaurant, Peppercorns, serves up seafood, sandwiches, and sweeping panoramas of the beach. Stop at the lounge to catch live music on Friday nights and karaoke on Saturdays. Upstairs, each of the hotel's guest rooms features beach-inspired decor and offers views of the city, dunes, or ocean.

North Carolina's Outer Banks: Historical Monuments and Sand Dunes

The Ramada Plaza is located about a mile north of the Wright Brothers National Memorial, a 60-foot granite obelisk topped by a shining marine beacon commemorating the first human-powered flight. Here you’ll also find wind-tunnel reproductions, replicas of the brothers' early gliders, memorabilia, and the pinch of Tinker Bell's pixie dust that made aviation possible.

A couple miles south of the hotel, some of the tallest natural sand dunes on the East Coast dot the grounds of Jockey’s Ridge State Park. They say these mounds of constantly shifting sand would fill six million dump-truck beds. Combative winds from the northeast and southwest keep them from blowing away.

Farther south, Cape Hatteras National Seashore has earned the nickname “Graveyard of the Atlantic” for the many ships that have wrecked here on its dangerous shoals during storms. The abundant wildlife in the area includes nesting sea turtles, and the surfing is considered some of the best on the East Coast.
