There has been a change in the local beach driving permits. You need a permit to drive the Kill Devil Hills beach this year. The Nags Head permit and the Kill Devil Hills permit has been combined in to one. When you purchase a Nags Head Beach Permit, it will also include Kill Devil Hills. The cost remains at $25.00. They can be purchase from Nags Head Town Office or TW’s Tackle in Nags Head. The permit is good from Oct 1 to May 1.
