Carova Beach or Carova is an unincorporated community in Currituck Countymarker in the extreme northeast corner of North Carolinamarker, USAmarker. The community, which is found on Currituck Banks, north of Bodie Islandmarker, can only be accessed by boat or by four-wheel drive vehicle since there are no paved roads connecting Carova Beach to either neighboring settlements Virginia Beach, Virginiamarker or Corolla, North Carolinamarker. Four-wheel drive vehicles drive north along the beach from Corolla into the community.

The community's name derived from the combination of the first syllables of Carolina and Virginiamarker since the coastal community lies just south of the North Carolina-Virginia state line. Thus, it is the northernmost of the Outer Banksmarker communities of North Carolina.

Banker horses and other wildlife roam freely on the beaches of Carova. There is an enforced law on the beach that states that no one is to get within of the horses. Aside from a volunteer fire department, commercialism is absent from this section of the Outer Banks; there are no restaurants, shops, or other attractions that often accompany beach communities. There are many beach homes, however, and developers continue to build in the area.
