Relax and Unwind in Corolla
From long, blissful walks along the shore to nightly stargazing and morning beach yoga, the perfect zen experience awaits you. Here is how you can rest, relax, and unwind in just a few easy steps.
1. Book Your Corolla Vacation Rental
Whether you can escape for a quick midweek stay or an entire week, we have a wide selection of Corolla vacation rentals for you to choose from. Our homes have plenty of space for everyone in your party to spread out, expansive porches for fresh ocean breezes, and outdoor living areas for peace and quiet. Indoors, you will find dining rooms with enough seating to enjoy a family meal and a living for cat naps or movie nights. Perhaps the best thing about our rental homes is the easy access to the beach.
2. Long Walks on the Beach
Every relaxing beach vacation includes a daily walk on the beach. Head out to the shoreline, where the sand is nice and firm, and go for a walk. Watch the sunrise, hunt for seashells, or marvel at the majestic Atlantic Ocean. You may even spot our famous Corolla wild horses.
3. Indulge in a Local Coffe Shop or a Delicious Meal
Nothing says relaxing, like grabbing a coffee and sitting on the porch or balcony of your vacation rental. Sip your coffee and soothe your mind. You could also indulge your tastebuds and pamper yourself when you dine at one of our incredible local restaurants.
4. Relax at a Spa
A spa day on the Outer Banks is a wonderful way to relax and ease your worries. Corolla has numerous spas and massage studios, such as Outer Banks Massage Therapy. It never felt so good to unwind in Corolla.
5. Beach + Chair + Good Book = Happy
Grab a good book and your beach chair for a day of relaxing under the sun. Wiggle your toes in the sand, drink in the ocean breeze, and turn the page on stress.
6 . Paddle Your Way to Zen
Kayaking is an excellent option for those who want an active yet tranquil experience. While peaceful and relaxing, kayaking gives you a gentle upper-body workout, gets your blood flowing, and offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature. From the serenity of the marshes and sound to the beauty of the ocean, there are various kayaking options in Corolla.
7. Visit a Local Winery (or Just Drink the Wine)
There’s nothing like enjoying a glass of wine and gazing at the ocean waves after a long day at the beach. It tastes even better when you try it where the wine was created! Visit our local wineries, or pick up a bottle to enjoy from your deck.
6. The Serenity of Stargazing
Due to minimal light pollution, Corolla is a stargazer’s paradise. Exploring the night sky on the Outer Banks is like embarking on a cosmic odyssey, where stars, planets, and celestial wonders come to life. If you want to truly “get away from it all,” stargazing is the ultimate experience.
