Corolla, also known as the “gold coast” of Currituck County, is situated on an expanse of Atlantic Ocean at the Northern end of the Outer Banks, North Carolina. In the early 1900s, this area became a favorite of a handful of wealthy businessmen who built exclusive, private hunt clubs on large acres of Corolla beach and land. One of them, the Whalehead Club, located at Currituck Heritage Park, began as a private hunt club/mansion on the sound; restored in 1993, it is now a popular historical vacation attraction. Another favorite with visitors is the Currituck Beach Lighthouse. Built in 1875, it is the only natural red brick lighthouse on the East Coast and was constructed to provide a safe pathway for and warning of shallow waters to sailors entering what has long been known as “the Graveyard of the Atlantic.”
Building on a history shaped by this unique landscape, today Corolla is widely known for its large, upscale vacation rentals.
