Bodie Island Lighthouse

Search Manteo North Carolina

Bodie Island Lighthouse is halfway between the Currituck Beach and Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on Highway 12 south of Nags Head and west of Coquina Beach. Built in 1872 on the isolated Body's Island it remains today one of the most classic settings of American light stations. Its magnificent first-order Fresnel lens may be seen flashing its warning each night. The original spelling "Body" is thought to be named after the family who owned the land.

The National Park Service operates a visitors center in the old keepers house of Bodie Island Light. Since it is still a working lighthouse, Bodie is closed to the public.
