The Bodie Island Lighthouse, (pronounced "Body") is located just south of the town of Nags Head and Whalebone Junction, where Highway 158, Highway 64, and NC Highway 12 intersect. Visitors travelling towards Hatteras Island can't help but notice the black and white horizontal striped structure, peaking out over a line of dense cedar trees on the soundside.
A friendly staff and small town atmosphere makes this well-equipped grocery store a pleasure to shop at, and many visitors come regularly on their annual vacation. Situated on the oceanfront next to Jennette’s Pier, this local family-owned market has been in business for more than 50 years. This is a great place to pick up fresh-made sandwiches, snacks and salads for a picnic lunch at the beach, or on your way to go fishing all day at Oregon Inlet. Cold drinks, beer and good selection of wine and quality meat are also available here, as well as gourmet cheeses and fixings. There’s even fresh local produce for sale. You can also purchase bait and tackle, and pick up a nice beach souvenir at the gift shop.
