A Summertime Guide to the Outer Banks

Welcome to the Outer Banks (beyond the Netflix drama), where the ocean breeze promises endless summer adventures and the sandy shores invite you to soak up the sun. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Currituck Sound, Sanderling Resort beckons as the ultimate summer escape for travelers seeking both excitement and relaxation. Whether you’re a “kook or a true-blue Pogue,” the Outer Banks offers the perfect blend of activities to satisfy every type of traveler.  So, pack your sunscreen and sense of adventure – it’s time to dive into the magic of this coastal retreat!

Here are five activities worth checking out during your stay with Sanderling:

  1. Wild Horses Tour

Climb aboard one of Corolla Outback’s specialized off-road vehicles for a unique adventure through the Wild Horse Conservation Easement and other inaccessible areas of Corolla. With private tours available, explore the beauty of the Outer Banks with knowledgeable guides. Tours typically last around two hours, promising an unforgettable experience, and the horses are sometimes seen walking along the beach and even playing in the surf.

  1. Outer Banks Cruises

From sunset sails to a trip to the Sanctuary Vineyards, get out and on the water for a day at sea and enjoy the views of the Carolina coast.

  1. Boat Sports

Dive into a day of water thrills with wakeboard, waterski, kneeboard and tube adventures. Tailor your experience to your group’s preferences – choose one activity or try them all! The secluded wakeboard/waterski area boasts top-of-the-line O’Brien equipment and personalized instruction for a memorable ride.

  1. Wright Experience

Looking to make history while you’re on the Outer Banks? Fly a reproduction of the Wright Brothers’ 1902 Glider. Your flight over the Dunes will be just like the Wright Brothers. And you’ll be one of the few in the world to ever fly this glider just as the Wright Brothers did (even at the same location) over 100 years ago.

  1. Surf Lessons

Sanderling Resorts’ sandbar creates an ideal environment for learning to surf. Get ready to ride the waves and conquer the ocean with the guidance of expert instructors.
