Our Memorial Day weekend was full of happenings! We’re wrapping up the weekend by sharing a highlights that went on here at Sanderling over the long holiday. Between our full wedding schedule and the opening of our latest renovation, we were busy as bees. Take a look below to get the highlights!


The Sanderling Resort administrative office celebrated Red Nose Day! Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day was held in the US on May 21st, 2015.People across the country came together to have fun and raise funds and awareness. The day’s events culminated in a three-hour entertainment TV special on NBC featuring the country’s favorite comedians, musicians and Hollywood stars.


Our Sandbar is now open 7 days a week for your Sanderling vacation! Stop by to grab a picnic for your beach day or relax under an orange umbrella while listening to our island tunes. Check out the menu here!

A full wedding weekend! This Saturday, we married Katie & Nick- the newlyweds chose a ceremony and cocktail hour on our Event Lawn followed by a Soundside reception at our Pavilion. Congrats you two!

On Sunday, we had a couple from Atlanta bring their crowd for an Oceanside wedding! Married with their toes in the sand, Megan & Christopher followed their beach ceremony with a cocktail hour on the Event Lawn and a reception in our Pavilion. We loved the miniature coke bottle escort cards they chose for their guests!

On Memorial Day, we had one last wedding for the weekend, Abbey & Matthew! They chose to hold their ceremony on the beach followed by a cocktail hour on our Event House Deck and their reception in our Event House. We couldn’t get over this stunning cake by Great Cakes! Of The Outer Banks, isn’t is lovely?


This heaping wooden board of yummy bites is our Mediterranean Antipasto. Chef Wilson created this for a wedding this weekend and we heard raves over how great the presentation was! On this presented station, you will find Italian Charcuterie, Marinated Grilled Vegetables, Imported Cheeses, Olives & Pepperoncinis- perfect for any occasion.


Memorial Day marked the beginning of our partnership with the Outer Banks Popcorn Shoppe! Stop by the Front Desk to pick up one of our little characters, Sanderling Stanley & Sallie, to color and take to the nearest popcorn location for a free child’s popcorn! Show us your special treats and colored creations using #OBXPopcorn and tagging us @SanderlingResort and @OBXPopcornShoppe on social media.


Staci at the Sandbar was whipping up a storm for our guests making this very patriotic Poolside Rum drink this weekend. The weather was gorgeous and the pool was inviting, making the perfect setting for a refreshing drink of red, white & blue!



The North Inn is now open! 18 new guestrooms on a new third floor of the North Inn – all with views above the dune line of the Atlantic Ocean or Currituck Sound. We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests the amazing views from these rooms!

We hope you had an amazing Memorial Day Weekend- see you soon! That’s the long weekend wrap!
