If you’re dreaming of the perfect beach vacation, you can do no better than the town of Duck on the Outer Banks. This family-friendly small town offers an abundance of fun activities, both on the water and off. What better way to experience it than staying right on the beach? With Duck beach rentals!
Comfort and Convenience
Our beach rentals offer you the easy access of being just steps from the sand, combined with all the comforts of home. You’ll wake up in the morning to the refreshing sea air, and step outside on your spacious deck to enjoy your morning cup of coffee, prepared in your fully equipped kitchen. Spend the day lounging on the sand, going for endless swims, or seeing if you can catch up some dinner. Prepare your fresh catch in the kitchen, or on the grill, and end the day with sunset cocktails overlooking the sea. Don’t forget a romantic walk under the moonlight!
Our beachfront rentals offer great perks, like private pools and hot tubs, multiple master bedrooms, and incredible entertainment setups. You’ll also find many conveniences, like a washer/dryer, fast internet, and even baby supplies like high chairs in some rentals. As a bonus, many of our Duck beach rentals are also dog-friendly!
Take to the Water Like a Duck
Duck is an awesome place for exploring the seaside, whether you get in the water or not. Of course, you’ll enjoy being just steps from the sand in your beachfront rental, but there’s so much more to explore than just the gorgeous beaches. The town of Duck has a popular boardwalk which is a must-see with the family, as it winds through coastal marshes, passing by great snack shops along the way! You’ll also have the convenience of a public canoe/kayak launch here in Duck, so you can put those rentals in the water and start exploring Currituck Sound.
Duck is also an amazing place to try out some new water sports, so if you get tired of lounging around working on your tan, head on over to Nor’Banks Water Sports and take a sailing or stand-up paddling lesson! You can also rent Wave Runners and race your friends or get a pontoon boat and spend a fun day all together on the water. For more heart-pounding action, try parasailing, or just go for a relaxing and romantic sunset catamaran cruise.
Fishing is always a classic Outer Banks activity, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on trying your hand at catching up some dinner. A quick and easy way to try it out is fishing or crabbing right from the Duck Town Boardwalk! There are also some great ocean-side fishing piers located in nearby Kitty Hawk and Nags Head, if you’re out driving around and exploring. In particular, Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head offers aquarium exhibits and marine life education, along with a great spot to fish.
If you’re in the market for a full day’s fishing adventure, consider heading out to sea on a private fishing charter. There’s no better way to get your chance to land the big catch! East Coast Fishing Adventure, located in Duck, will set you up with the fishing trip of your dreams, whether you feel like fishing in the sound, an inlet, or the open ocean. They’ll get you involved in all aspects of the operation, and by the end of the day, you’ll be a real fisherman! Enjoy cooking up your fresh catch for dinner!
If you’d prefer to explore the waterways of the Outer Banks in non-motorized fashion, check out the premium guided tours from Coastal Kayak Touring Company. Located in downtown Duck, this company is top-rated by National Geographic, and is renowned for their knowledgeable guides and skill at getting you out on the water. Perfect for families and beginners, they offer both kayak and stand-up paddling tours, with guides who will happily educate you about the wildlife and natural history of the Outer Banks. Kayak the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge and learn about the moonshiners who once hid a secret town there, while looking for alligators sunning themselves in the floating slough grass. Alternatively, head to the Pine Island Audubon Sanctuary, an incredible maze of eight square miles of marshy water trails, a paddler’s paradise which is one of the Outer Banks’ least-visited wilderness areas.
Great Food in Duck
No great vacation would be complete without some delicious food, and Duck will not disappoint! If you haven’t managed to catch even a single fish, you can still enjoy eating them at one of Duck’s great seafood joints. For amazing Sound views along with your fresh fish, head to Sunset Grille & Raw Bar, where you can enjoy your seafood raw, steamed, or fried, as well as enjoy Caribbean-inspired dishes. For low-key grub, Duck has great spots for pizza, burgers, and of course, the ever-famous Duck Donuts, where you can create your personal donut favorite.
