In 2019. the Town Council adopted an ordinance that prohibits beach equipment such as tents, chairs, and umbrellas to be left on the beach overnight. The Town of Kitty Hawk adopted this ordinance to protect safety and welfare of the general public.  As a courtesy, the Town is notifying all beachgoers that any items left on the beach after sunset may be removed and disposed of at the discretion of the Town.

The “LEAVE ONLY FOOTPRINTS” campaign is encouraging all beachgoers to remove all items at the end of each day in addition to properly disposing of waste. The Town invites everyone to enjoy our beautiful beaches but “Leave Only Footprints” at the end of day.

If there are any questions regarding this Town ordinance, please contact Andy Stewart at 252-261-3552.
