Enjoy an Action-Packed Itinerary in Charming Southern Shores
Nestled between the towns of Duck and Kitty Hawk, Southern Shores is only minutes from the area’s best attractions while offering a laid-back, relaxed atmosphere so you can truly escape the summer commotion.
One of the best and easiest ways to calm your nerves on a beach getaway is to head to a stretch of sand that is not filled to the brim with sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts. While this may seem like a difficult task in the Outer Banks since this area is home to some of the finest beaches on the east coast, Southern Shores offers you the perfect solution to this oceanfront dilemma.
With no public beach access points available along its shore, only those staying in Southern Shores vacation rentals can lounge, swim, sunbathe, or surf off the soft, sandy beaches. Imagine a wide, uncrowded beach and the soothing sound of the ocean’s waves right outside your beach house’s back door, and this is just the beginning of the private paradise waiting for you in Southern Shores.
While hiking and fishing are other great ways to experience this scenic region, a round of golf at the Duck Woods Country Club is another excellent option for those who love challenging courses set in visually-stunning settings. In addition, you can take a break from your activity-filled afternoons by exploring the up-and-coming stores of the Southern Shores Crossing Shopping Center.
Want to venture into a few surrounding towns? A day spent in Duck, which lies slightly north, is always entertaining when you visit the Duck Research Pier or peruse the quaint shops and boutiques that populate the village. Also consider a hike through the Kitty Hawk Woods or a journey further south to Jockey’s Ridge State Park and the Bodie Island Lighthouse in Nags Head.
