Visit Colington Harbour: Stay Soundfront
Colington Harbour is a favorite spot for us to stay when we visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is a community mostly inhabitated by locals but mostly always vacationers. With a private beach perfect for days when the ocean is too cold to swim in or the wind is coming in from the east, you can dip in a the water is normally amazing. With a public playground with vintage rockers, tall swings and private pool, this place has it all. If you have a boat, a boat ramp is available at the community center. Kayaks are fun to use in the canal or in the sound too.
The house I have chosen to show you today is located on the soundside where the sunsets will be amazing. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning and a drink under the house in the afternoon. The afternoon sun can be brutal but do as the locals do and hide out under the house. Try crabbing with a chicken neck you can purchase at the grocery story for little to nothing and buy a crabbing kit. Fling your chicken in the water, tied to part of the dock, and watch the crabs come for dinner.
I'm going to let you in on a big secret too about the Outer Banks, after September through October, the water is still VERY WARM. Shhhhh....
