Where Is Outer Banks Set?

In spite of the fact that it didn’t film there, Outer Banks is set in the Outer Banks of the United States, a 200-mile-long piece of hindrance islands and separates the shoreline of North Carolina and southeastern Virginia.

Further south there’s much more palm trees. We don’t have that many palm trees here on the Outer Banks. Some of it seemed to be comparative, yet when you live here, in the absolute first scene you’re similar to, ‘Gracious, that is not here.'”
