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.
We are experiencing issues with the CHA Marketplace Form email function. If you are wishing to place an ad in the Marketplace, please send your request directly to: CHA Marketplace. Please include your first name, last name, email, phone number, CHA section number, and a description for the ad. You can also include 1-2 pictures of the item.

The winter holidays are past. Still trying to find room to store all the great gifts received during the holidays? Still have items that you don’t need anymore? Whether you are looking to sell these items or just give them away, why not consider listing them on the CHA Marketplace? It’s easy and FREE!! You can also list services that you provide for neighbors in the community (i.e.: lawn maintenance, brush trimming, home repairs, painting, etc.). Or, if you are looking for someone to do electrical work, plumbing work, yard work, housework, etc., you can list that also!
This is not a yard sale – groups of people will not be arriving at your doorstep. You and the buyer decide on how to exchange the items.
To begin, just click on the sentence above.
A place for CHA members (lot owner(s) to advertise items for sale, items wanted, services offered, or services needed. Unlike many other sites, this site will be monitored, and all ads will be screened prior to being listed.

DARE COUNTY LARGE ITEM PICKUP
Please read carefully, as procedures have changed: Large item pickup for unincorporated Dare County will begin March 27, 2023. All items must be placed along the roadside prior to March 27, 2023.
The Dare County Public Works Department has announced that large item pickup for the unincorporated areas of Dare County* will begin on Monday, March 27, 2023 and run continuously for approximately 12-15 days.
In order to ensure all of your accepted items are picked up on the first and only pass, please do not place any materials on the roadside after the start of the large item pickup, which is Monday, March 27, 2023.*
*Please note that your items will remain at the roadside throughout the duration of the large item pickup period until the contractor reaches your area and is able to collect them. If the private contractor does not take an item you placed on the roadside by the conclusion of the 12- to 15-day collection period, it has been rejected and therefore must be disposed of at your own expense.

REMINDER: To All Dog Owners
PLEASE pick up after your dog!
In addition, 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
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!!.
