Welcome to Colington Harbour!
Colington Harbour is a private gated subdivision situated in the heart of the Outer Banks. With over 2,400 lots, the “Harbour” is also the largest, and serves as home to a thriving boating community featuring miles of canals and scenic sound front homes along the beautiful Albemarle Sound.
Originally developed as a mix of retirement and vacation cottages, the Harbour has grown into the permanent residence for thousands of families and children galore. The deep water canals, ideal location, and friendly faces of our residents have made our community one of the premier destinations along the Atlantic coast.
Amenities within our neighborhood include a huge sound side park with sandy beaches, a playground, and sheltered picnic areas, a basketball court, as well as a kayak rack, boat launch and boat slips for rent. For a nominal fee, residents may also join the Yacht and Racket Club, which allows use of the two outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, and community clubhouse.
As a reminder, throughout the year, please always abide by the Parks’s rules.

Barnhill will begin repairing the pavement at the front entrance, that was damaged due to a massive water leak. They will begin work on the righthand lane, Wednesday, April 21. Initially they will remove the black top and prep the base of the roadway. Upon completion of that stage, it will be a stone roadway until it can be paved the following Tuesday, April 27th. We urge you to drive slowly and carefully over the stone surface. All right lane traffic will be diverted onto the left lane (next to the guard gate) during the prepping of the road. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

REMINDER: To All Dog Owners
There have been some concerns raised over dogs that are being walked, but unleashed. Although some of these dogs are extremely friendly, and will run up to adults and children just to be petted, it can be a frightening experience for children or adults who are afraid of dogs.
Please be sensitive to these people, and leash your dog when walking on the roads of Colington Harbour.
Thank you, CHA

New CHA Gate Camera System
New cameras were recently installed at the main gate of Colington Harbour, and were activated on Tuesday, January 12, 2021. These cameras replaced an aging system of cameras that were in place for the past 8 years.
The new camera system, because of its enhanced resolution, can identify the type of vehicle, color of vehicle, and the license plate of the vehicle.
Please be assured that your privacy is important to us and NO access to the system will be permitted to any of the CHA Security personnel or the CHA Office staff. It will be available to local, State, and Federal law enforcement as necessary, or by court order as requested.
We encourage you to take five minutes and go to the web site, Flock Safety to familiarize yourself with the system’s capabilities.
REMINDER: Signage in Colington Harbour
No signs are permitted on properties within Colington Harbour. See Article VII, Section 1, of the Colington Harbour Covenants, 2005 (Colington Harbour Covenants) for details.
‘Campaign’ (political) signs, as defined by Dare County Statute, are permitted 6 weeks prior to the election and must be removed no later than 10 days after the election.
SPEED LIMITS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
The posted speed limit throughout the harbour is 25 mph. Please abide by this speed limit.
Pedestrian and Cyclists
Please use caution, as a driver, to ensure the safety of everyone. Blind drives, curves, and narrow shoulders throughout the neighborhood, can lead to accidents that we can avoid if we use caution.
Cyclists should ride on the right hand side of the road, riding with traffic. Use caution when approaching curves and blind drives. Pedestrians should walk on the left hand side of the road, also using caution. Walking or riding a bicycle on the wrong side of the road can cause unexpected obstacles to drivers.
Our roads are extremely narrow. Please, be courteous to all!!.
Access to Dare Community Crime Line
We have decided to keep our office open to the public, while attempting to conduct as much business as possible through email and phone. We will continue to limit the visits to one person at a time. If anything can be handled via phone please call us at 252-441-5886 or email us at: email@example.com
We are having many issues at the gate, with vehicles in the left lane, not yielding to the vehicles in the right lane. If you use the left lane, you MUST STOP at the gate house, then yield to any vehicles in the right lane before proceeding to the second STOP sign. Please inform any visitors, friends, or family of this regulation. This is for everyone’s safety.
