Three undeveloped barrier islands make up the seashore - North and South Core Banks and Shackleford Banks.

The National Park Service, as part of their Centennial Initiative celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016, is planning to rehabilitate the Lighthouse and restore the Cape Lookout and Portsmouth Village Historic Districts.
