Outer Banks Experiences

For such barrier islands that are so narrow all the way down the chain, the Outer Banks of North Carolina will amaze visitors with the vast array of activities on offer, its landmarks and natural phenomena to experience. The experience of staying in the Outer Banks gives a whole new meaning to your idea of what is a vacation.

From simply flying a kite or strolling the walking trail at the nearby Pine Island Audubon Sanctuary, to taking a four-wheel excursion to the wild horse habitat, kayaking through the protected shores of the Currituck Sound, or surfing and boogy boarding in the waves right in front of the Resort, Sanderling’s ideal location—with immediate access to the Ocean and the Sound allows you to choose your own adventure - whatever and whenever you desire.
