Accessible only by boat, Shackleford Banks can be reached via a short ferry ride, where you might get a glimpse of bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles and more. Part of the 56-mile Cape Lookout National Seashore, Shackleford Banks, with its undeveloped and pristine beaches, is perhaps best-known as an exceptional shelling destination. The island is home to the 120 “Banker Ponies,” whose ancestors are believed to be shipwrecked Spanish Mustangs from the late 1500s.
