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.

The remainder of the boats should gather in the Brigantine canal (same place we gather for the blessing) at 4:45. At around 5:00, all boats will head out into the harbor and begin circling. Monitor Channel 68 for any changes or information

1st Place $75, 2nd Place $50, 3rd Place $25
Unfortunately, due to social distancing, hot chocolate will not be able to be served. However, all is not lost, there will be cookies and cider set up at a nearby table. We ask that you keep proper spacing when in line for the goodies and while watching the parade. Face masks are required.
So, boaters light up your vessel. Everyone else, come out and enjoy the show!

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!!.
DREDGING HAS BEEN COMPLETED

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
