Summer Sun, Sand & Surf

Dive into Summer at Currituck. Made for the wild, free, young & young at heart. 

Your beautiful beach home rental puts you within a few footprints from the warm Atlantic ocean. Surf, ski, swim, or just stroll along the waterline collecting shells and one gorgeous view after the next.

Of course, there’s more to summer on the northern Outer Banks than the shimmering beaches. Head off on an unforgettable 4X4 adventure tour on the beaches of Corolla to see the protected herd of wild Spanish Mustangs.

Summer season is packed with fantastic food festivals, art shows, haunted tours of the historic Whalehead Club, Wild Horse Days and beyond.
