Located east of the intersection of US 64 and US 264, it is nestled along the western bank of Croatan Sound. Before 1957, Manns Harbor used to harbor a ferry that traversed the sound and provided access to Roanoke Island. Today, the William B. Umstead Bridge (completed in 1957) and the four-lane Virginia Dare Memorial Bridge (completed in 2002) link Manns Harbor on the mainland to Manteo on Roanoke Island. The community provides a gateway to North Carolina's Outer Banks.
The Hyde County airport and Dare County Regional Airport are the closest airports.
