Oceanfront luxury. Toes in the sand. Romance. Natural Beauty. Beach, pools, restaurants and spa. Tennis, golf and practically any outdoor activity that you can imagine. All this and so much more can be found at the newly renovated four diamond Sanderling Resort. Located on the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Duck, North Carolina, Sanderling is uniquely positioned to provide a truly life-altering Outer Banks vacation experience.

At the Sanderling Resort, casually elegant first-class amenities blend seamlessly with the spectacular landscape to foster connection and renewal. Offering magnificent views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound, our guests have the same unique opportunity to admire both a sunrise and sunset – both over water. The Resort’s guestrooms with their oversized bathrooms and generous decks, are a perfect complement to the quality of the natural setting, while our acclaimed spa and pools provide both unparalleled serenity at the tranquility pool, or a boisterous family environment at the Resort pool. The Resort’s renowned restaurants offer the finest dining on the Outer Banks, with perfectly prepared and presented fresh coastal cuisine and a choice of venues to match the time of day, the season and your mood. Meetings, reunions and weddings enjoy a choice of great spaces – both inside and outside – from Decks perched on the dunes overlooking the Beach and the Atlantic, to the Pavillion at Sanderling with sunsets that sometimes seem too spectacular to be real.

At the Sanderling Resort, families awaken as troubles slip past, and flayed wits begin to mend. On the beach towel or a chaise lounge, memories grow and imaginations ignite as castles are constructed, waves are conquered, and books are devoured. And on the sandy heels of relaxation, exploration follows naturally. Sanderling lies in close proximity to a bounty of Outer Banks attractions, limited only by one’s imagination and energy. No matter the preference or the season, Sanderling’s onsite Adventure Concierge will assist in crafting a personal and exciting experience.

In the true spirit of ebb and flow that characterizes the Outer Banks, the haven of the Sanderling will patiently await your return. And when the moon has risen, and your breath has slowed to match the tide, you’ll smile, knowing that the memories made here will stay with you, your friends and your family forever.


From your suite, you tread on warm wooden boardwalks to the Beach House and Sand Bar. Your favorite chaise lounge is one perched beside either the tranquility pool or the family pool. Or you venture into one of two restaurants that top both the food—and wine—chain in the Outer Banks.
