Atlantic Beach is the oldest of five resort towns along the Bogue Banks of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Known as the Crystal Coast, the area is one of those places that remain in your memory as a peaceful oasis. And Peppertree Atlantic Resort is one of those resorts that you are going to want to visit again and again.
From you villa, you can walk down the boardwalk to the white, sandy beach, rent a chair and umbrella, and just soak in the sun all day. When you get hungry, there are plenty of local restaurants in the area where you can sample the local catch-of-the-day. Or, if you are so inclined, try your own hand in catching dinner by casting a line off one of the local piers or taking a charter boat on a fishing excursion.
Once you have caught dinner, you can cook it in your full kitchen back in your room. Then you can enjoy dining al fresco on your private deck. If you prefer, you can also grill your dinner at one of the resort’s barbecue grills and then take an after-dinner swim in one of the resort’s pools, let the children enjoy their own pool, play a game of tennis or volleyball, or see what activities are going on in the recreation room or game room. Whatever you do, there is certainly something for everyone on the resort grounds.
The variety of fun activities continues when you venture out into the Crystal Coast communities. The Banker Ponies, or wild horses in Shackleford, are a local treasure. Off shore, a sunken U-boat and other wrecks that are perfect for scuba diving also add to the local lore. Back on land, you can take in a Civil War reenactment at Fort Macon State Park, or play a round or two of golf at one of the many, championship golf courses.
Yes, the Peppertree Atlantic Resort is a treasure trove of fun and activities for everyone, from large families looking for something for everyone, to couples, looking for a romantic escape. Fresh seafood, pristine beaches, wild horses, and great history are just the start. For everything else, you will have to experience it for yourself.
