About the Area: The beach is a 10 minute walk just across the two lane road. The road you walk down brings you to the Rodanthe Pier (where The Nights of Rodanthe movie starring Richard Gere was filmed) - this is the only Pier within 20 miles - and a fairly secluded beach area. You'll be able to pick your spot on the beach with ease and without having to walk far.
The Chicamacomico Life Saving Station museum is about 1 mile away, and the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse (America's Tallest Lighthouse) is about 25 miles away and is worth climbing. S-Turns is known as the best surf spot on the East Coast and is 1 mile from the resort.(WV19)
