About Rodanthe

Located to the south of USA's capital, Washington, Rodanthe is a secluded destination; worlds away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Many of those who have never visited the town before may be confused by the signs pointing to Chicamacomico, however this relates back to the fact that Rodanthe was known by this name until 1874 and signs have been left as a sign of its history.

Rodanthe is essentially a beach resort, full of gift shops and restaurants which keeps the town running as a small-scale tourist location. As previously mentioned, this otherwise unknown destination was brought straight into the public eye when it was used within Nicholas Sparks’ novel and eventual movie, and now tourists from all over the world come to see this beautiful resort.

What to do

Ideal for outdoors and beach lovers, Rodanthe has a wide range of relaxed and adventurous activities on offer to keep the whole family entertained.

Take a visit to see some wildlife at the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. Here, you will spot over 400 species of bird, as well as the opportunity to go fishing and even kayaking within the resort. If you’d prefer to try fishing straight out of the ocean, Rodanthe Pier is a great location and even provides bait and tackle as well as refreshments throughout the day.

Watersports are extremely popular with adventure seekers here, due to the great winds which come in from the Southern Outer bank. You can hire equipment for windsurfing and kiteboarding.

Top Rodanthe travel tips

Be aware that many of the stores and restaurants within Rodanthe open seasonally, so if you're hoping to take a trip in the winter, you may find that most are closed until the following spring.

One of the best ways of getting around the island is either by cab, shuttle or tour bus if you don't wish to drive. These can be hired online before you travel.
