Delight in the beachside landscape of Southern Shores

Enjoy the entertainment and other features of Southern Shores. Renowned for its beaches, dolphin watching and seaside, this city welcomes all visitors. If you need more space to accommodate a family vacation or friends trip, rental homes often come with separate dining areas and spacious living rooms.

Things to do

Discover vineyards and boardwalks in Southern Shores

If you can pull yourself away from the sun-splashed decks and bubbling al fresco hot tubs of your Southern Shores vacation rentals for a spell, it's certainly worth heading north to quaint and charming Duck Town. There, the Town of Duck Boardwalk Park offers a winding, water-top walkway over the pretty Currituck Sound _ it's perfect ground for picnickers and birders. That's also where you can join excursions across the bay to Jarvisburg, home to Sanctuary Vineyards and their on-site tasting rooms.

Activities

Southern Shores is fun by the ocean

Just one glimpse at Southern Shores on the map should be enough to reveal what really drives people to this corner of the Outer Banks each summer: The ocean. The Atlantic caresses the whole eastern coastline of the town, giving way to soft, sloping beaches and some darn beautiful Southern Shores vacation rentals with views over the rollers. The result is a whole host of seaside enjoyments. You can sunbathe and splash in the shallows. You can wax down the surfboard and whizz over the swells of nearby riding spots. You can charter boats for fishing outings.

Weather

Get sun kissed in Southern Shores

Southern Shores vacation rentals go into hibernation during the winter months, when the Atlantic is wild and the frothing waves bring colder weather to the Outer Banks region. Much better is to come here with the crowds in the summer, between the months of June and August. That's when you can look forward to temperatures in the middle of the 80s, along with hot sea breezes. Spring and fall are also great times to settle in the villas, offering fewer people on the sands and mild, drier days to boot.

Natural features

Southern Shores takes the brunt of the Atlantic

Southern Shores sits between the other pretty beach towns of the so-called Outer Banks. This set of barrier islands that strings its way along the whole Eastern Seaboard between North Carolina and Virginia is home to some of the most beautiful sandy beaches this side of the Rockies, complete with swaying beds of seagrasses, undulating dunes, and sweeping wetland habitats in the sounds to their back. You can find breathtaking sunrises and lapping waves on the one side, while outings down the creeks of places like the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge to the west are also on the menu.
