Looking for family fun this Memorial Day Weekend? Look no further! Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the season in the Outer Banks and at the Sanderling! We have a whirlwind of events and activities to keep the entire family busy over the long weekend.

The beach is warming up for Summer Fun but our pools are also open for the season! We have 3 onsite pools for everyone’s convenience. The Resort Pool with zero entry is located at the North Inn and fun for all ages! More chaises have been added at the Tranquility Pool, located at the South Inn for guests 21 and older, for taking in that summer sun.   Just in case of inclement weather (or sunburn from the day before), the Indoor Pool is located at the Spa and open 8am – 9pm.


Our casual pool/beachside restaurant, Sandbar, is in full swing for the season!   Food service is available from 12-5pm daily. Order from our delectable menu at the bar, or have it delivered to either of our outdoor pools. Thirsty? Order one of our signature drinks from 12-8pm!



A world class yoga experience on our ocean side observation deck venue allows you to embrace the incredible outdoor elements with the comfort and function of a hard wood studio floor. We welcome back Susie Nelson who has been with us since the beginning of our outdoor yoga program.  All levels welcome. Meet in the Beach House Lobby; bring bottled water and your own mat or one will be provided for you. Monday- Friday, $17/pp
