Few things get us this excited around the holidays as when Sanderling takes a turn for the merrier. Boughs of greenery, twinkling lights, and adorned trees seemingly fly up over night, transforming our coastal getaway into a holiday palace. Nothing warms you up like the sight of a full Christmas tree, am I right? Right!



Our little birds play a huge part in the festivities- you will find them all over the resort, just waiting to surprise you wherever you may go. These little birds have migrated for the winter in search of warmer climates, but we keep them around to remind us of their fun, inquisitive nature until they rejoin us again in the spring.



The Town of Duck is dusting off it’s feathers as well- fresh Christmas trees for sale, those fun, giant ornaments dotted throughout the town, and some festive horses are some of the treats you will find here. One of the most unique things the Outer Banks has around the holidays is the “crab pot tree” – a recent tradition our locals have started.Don’t miss our town’s mascot perched on the top of our tree!




Happy Holidays from the Sanderling family, and all of us in the Outer Banks- we can’t wait to have you back!
