Southern Shores is a charming residential area with very little commericial development. Running effortlessly into the towns of Duck and Kitty Hawk, there are no hotels, motels, condos, fast food chains, or commercial buildings in this area; only residential and vacation homes nestled within 4.1 square-miles of maritime forest.
Southern Shores rentals range from “beach box” cottages and one-story, ranch-style homes; to large, multiple bedroom vacation rentals. A number of Southern Shores rental properties offered by Sun Realty are secluded within tree-lined streets, while other rentals bump right into the dune line. While the homes are nestled, similarly the beaches along Southern Shores offer a quiet stretch of sand with plenty of room to spread out. During the summer months, lifeguard stands dot the beach and the beaches are private to only vacationers staying in the Southern Shores area.
Take advantage of the close proximity that this residential area offers as a walking path leading into Duck along HWY 12 north allows visitors to take a decent trek under live oaks and dogwood trees. Additionally, the area of Southern Shores is well-within driving distance to Outer Banks fishing, such as the Kitty Hawk Pier; area attractions, with the likes of the Wright Brothers National Memorial; and wonderful, locally-owned and operated Outer Banks restaurants from Duck to Nags Head.
