Directly in front of the Resort, you’ll set foot on a world-class beach, whose beautiful wide sandy area stretches north to south as far as the eye can see. To the east is the Atlantic Ocean in all its glory. To the west are rounded sand dunes covered with native plants.

The ocean speaks, and you find the patience to listen. You hark back to simpler times, when you desire nothing more than frolicking in the sea, walking barefoot along the beach, and dozing in a lounge chair as the sun and sea breeze caresses your care-worn body.

On the beach, flip-flops and sandals are optional, good novels, sturdy shovels, and Sanderling's complimentary beach towels, chairs and umbrellas are required. Only imagination limits your activities while basking under the blue Carolina sky. Sanderling's boogie boards and skim boards delight when the surf rises, kites soar when the breeze blows, paddleboards and kayaks cruise when the sea calms, fishing lines reach when the fish bite. Games of all sorts are played out energetically on the spacious beach, and the seasoned Outer Banks sand is perfect for building sand castles and construction sites, for burying feet, and for digging up sand fiddlers and sunken treasure.

Perhaps most of all, families and friends come alive in the face of such simplistic majesty; and it is here—on the Outer Banks beach—that our deepest and strongest memories and bonds are made. And in all the Outer Banks, only the Sanderling Resort offers a private beach experience set against a backdrop of luxury -- its award-winning accommodations only a few sandy footsteps away.
