Find a beach rental in Duck

Named for the abundance of waterfowl and duck hunting in the area, Duck is one of the best places for Outer Banks beach rentals.

Things to do

Duck by the bay

A recent addition to the town’s landscape, the Duck Boardwalk provides some of the area’s most awe-inspiring panoramas over the Currituck Sound. This 1-mile stretch is open between dawn and 9 pm and has a variety of activities to please all comers. A number of waterfront amusements are great for kids and family-friendly excursions, while the unforgettable image of the sun setting over the crystalline waters is perfect for romance. The boardwalk is also dotted with stores, cafés, restaurants, and bars, so you can shop ‘til you drop, nab a tasty bite, or soak up the suds, all within walking distance of your home from home.

Activities

Taking to Duck’s waters

This idyllic town is bordered by both the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound, so visitors here can enjoy waking up to the lapping of waves near their beachfront Duck vacation rentals. Once you get going, it’s time to discover the glistening ocean and the scenic sound for yourself. Many local businesses offer surfboard, kayak, and paddleboard rental, meaning travelers can try something new in the warm, crystal-clear waters of North Carolina. Guided kayak tours of the sound are a fantastic way to learn about the region’s rich ecology, while Jet Ski excursions let you explore at your own pace.

Weather

Nice weather for Duck

The Atlantic Ocean has a moderating effect on the climate of North Carolina’s coastal resorts, ensuring that summers are warm and comfortable and keeping the freezing temperatures of inland cities at bay. Summer is the most popular season for hitting the beach and soaking up the rays, though you’ll need to reserve your Duck vacation rental in advance to get a bargain in this period. The mild winter months are an excellent alternative. Temperatures are still high enough for hikes, water sports, and strolls along the boardwalk, and Duck vacation rentals are in plentiful supply.

Natural features

Natural Duck’s got you covered

The 11-acre Duck Town Park is the go-to place to discover Duck’s natural wonders. This expanse of land overlooks the famous sound and comprises a mix of maritime forest, willowed wetlands, and verdant lawns. Bird-watching is a favorite pastime of locals in this park, with double-breasted cormorants and ducks known to nest here throughout the year. Nature enthusiasts can hit the woodland trails to spot colorful wildflowers and enjoy a picnic on the rolling lawns, before admiring a shimmering sunset above the sound’s shallow waters.
