Life on the open waves at Carova Beach

Base yourself in a Carova Beach vacation rental, and you'll have the deep blue Atlantic Ocean as your own adventure playground. Carova, and indeed the whole string of narrow barrier islands that make up the Outer Banks, is a world-renowned sport fishing hotspot, with the local crystal-clear waters teeming with yellowfin tuna, mahi mahi, wahoo, marlin, and other highly-prized catches. Ocean breezes and crashing waves often provide ideal conditions for adrenalin-pumping activities like surfing and kiteboarding. If you'd rather take in your sensational surroundings at a gentle pace, hire a kayak or paddle board and explore the coastline at your leisure.


Sunny summer days on Carova Beach

Carova Beach vacation rentals are in particularly high demand during the peak summer months of June to August. The weather at this time is generally hot and dry, with plenty of sunshine. Winters, by contrast, can be chilly, although much milder than many other regions of the United States.
