1. Only drive a 4WD vehicle on the beach. If you don’t have one, rent one. AWD will not work, and getting towed off the beach is expensive!
  2. When driving on the beaches of the Outer Banks, it is always imperative to air-down (or let air out of your tires) for maximum traction on the sand. But coming off the beach… where can you refill your tires, or “air-up?”
