Manns Harbor is a census-designated place community in Dare County, North Carolina, United States. Located east of the intersection of US 64 and US 264; it is nestled along the western bank of the Croatan Sound. Before 1957, Manns Harbor used to harbor a ferry that traversed the Croatan Sound and provided access to Roanoke Island. Today, the William B. Umstead Bridge (completed in 1957) and the 4-lane Virginia Dare Memorial Bridge (completed in 2002) link Manteo, North Carolina to the mainland. This community provides a gateway to North Carolina's Outer Banks.[2]

The residents of Manns Harbor are governed by the Dare County Board of Commissioners. Manns Harbor is part of District 1, along with Manteo, Roanoke Island and Wanchese.



The Hyde County airport and Dare County Regional Airport are the closest airports.
