Here Are the Top North Carolina Beach Experiences

Recreational Experiences

There are endless possibilities when it comes to outdoor recreation on the Outer Banks. Choose between any watersport you can imagine or just rent a bike and feel the sea breeze on your skin as you take in as much as you can. Because you’re at the beach, we recommend trying out a new water sport like kiteboarding, surfing, or parasailing. If sports are more your thing, you have to book a rental within the Pirate’s Cove Resort. Amenities include a fishing pier, tennis courts, basketball courts, a state-of-the-art fitness room, a community pool, and more! There are also several amazing golf courses around the coast for you to work on your swing.

Family Experiences

Getting the family together and renting a beach house is by far one of the best North Carolina beach experiences. Whether you have the entire extended family or it’s just you and the kids, there are plenty of things to do that will please everyone in your group. Paddle through the serene marshes and sounds while taking in the stunning landscape and getting a glimpse into wildlife. Kayaking is a favorite among locals and tourists. Kids as young as four can paddle in a tandem kayak, so it’s sure to delight and spark wonder in everyone in your group. We also recommend learning the vast history of this beautiful and important island by visiting the Island Farm in Manteo or Roanoke Island Festival Park. Both offer interactive and immersive looks into what life used to be like hundreds of years ago in the Outer Banks.

Pet-friendly Experiences

Leashed dogs are welcome on most Outer Banks beaches making the area a great spot for a pet-friendly vacation. Here at Pirate’s Cove Realty, we know that your pet is your furry family. We understand you don’t want to leave them behind when you go on vacation. That’s why we offer more than 30 dog-friendly vacation rentals! If you stay within the Pirate’s Cove Resort, you’ll love having access to four miles of boardwalk to walk your pup. Plus, there are plenty of things to do with your furry friend like enjoying a meal on a dog-friendly patio or going to the Kitty Hawk Dog Park.
