The Sanderling Resort & Spa Review

Located on a remote beach 5 mi north of Duck, the Sanderling is a fine place to be pampered, go swimming, or go for a stroll. The three resort buildings and five homes feature the mellow look of classic Carolina beach cottages with warm tones, wood furniture, and chenille lounge chairs. A 3-mi nature trail winds through the adjacent Pine Island Bird Sanctuary, and a partnership with Kitty Hawk Kites gives guests access to kayak tours, paddle boards, and other activities. The elegant, dinner-only Kimball's Kitchen restaurant ($$$$) has a wall of windows overlooking Currituck Sound. The resort-casual Lifesaving Station ($$–$$$), in a restored 1899 lifesaving station, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner and includes a second-floor lounge, No. 5 Bar.
