About This Spot

Almost all of the 13- mile long Pea Island is part of the national wildlife refuge. On Pea Island, motor vehicles are not allowed on the beaches making them safe places for birds and turtles to feed and nest. The natural and man made ponds on the west side of the island are filled, in season, with nesting birds. For those who do not know the names and habits of all the local birds, the volunteers at the Visitor Center will be happy to give tips on how to identify them. Two trails in the wildlife reserve have been set aside for visitors to make short walks out to viewing areas, some equipped with telescopes. If interested, ask for a schedule of the interpretive programs.
