Make a vacation rental in Southern Shores, USA your home away from home

Southern Shores is set towards the north of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, a string of barrier islands a little way off the coast. Southern Shores vacation rentals are set close to fantastic white sandy beaches, with the added benefit of being relatively secluded and unfrequented, as the resort has managed to stay off the maps of most visitors to the region.

Things to do in Southern Shores, USA

The main highlight close to Southern Shores vacation rentals is the oceanfront, home to a long stretch of white sandy shore. It’s best explored on foot or by bike via the numerous trails, which snake through forests and past sand dunes. There’s a private country club here, Duck Woods, with an 18-hole golf course that is open to the public. The course was designed by Ellis Maples, a famous PGA architect, and boasts stunning views and a unique challenge.

There are yet more courses no more than a 15-minute drive from Southern Shores self-catering accommodation – Sea Scape, Holly Ridge, Kilmarlic and Pointe are all close by. Meanwhile if you’re holidaying with family then Lost Treasure Golf would be a great choice for an afternoon of entertainment, with a fun-filled adventure golf course and amusements.

Southern Shores vacation accommodation is just minutes from Kitty Hawk, synonymous with the Wright Brothers who conducted the world’s first heavier than air powered flight at Kill Devil Hills. A national memorial has been erected there in memory of the achievement. Kitty Hawk is good spot for outdoor adventure activities like windsurfing, kite-surfing, kayaking and even hang-gliding, with lessons available locally.

Places to visit on holiday in Southern Shores, USA

About an hour south of Southern Shores holiday villas is the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, an expanse of protected shoreline that serves as an important wintering ground for a variety of bird species. A little closer is Nags Head, which is famous for the huge sand dune, Jockey’s Ridge - the largest on the USA’s East Coast and popular with hang-gliders. The shoreline here is also lovely, with plenty of public access points.

Winters are usually mild or pleasantly warm, while there’s great beach weather to be enjoyed here from around May to October.
