You don't have to look hard for Duck things to do. The beach is the primary place for Duck recreation and Southern Shores outdoor fun, whether it’s swimming, surfing, fishing, sea kayaking, walking or just lazing in the sun. But don’t overlook the soundside. The Currituck Sound is the perfect place to fish, sail, paddle a canoe or kayak, Parasail, Jet ski, standup paddleboard and windsurf. Several Duck outfitters offer kayak tours and water sports equipment rentals on the sound.
Other than watersports, Duck things to do are pretty low key. There’s a paved bike path along N.C. Highway 12/Duck Road through Southern Shores and Duck that’s perfect for biking, jogging, walking and strolling babies. If your kids are looking for somewhere to skate, you might want to take them up to Island Revolution Skate Park in Corolla, (252) 453-9484, instead of turning them loose on the bike path.
Note that beach driving is not allowed anywhere on Duck beaches.
We give the address for many Duck recreation businesses as Duck Road, which is the same road as N.C. Highway 12.
