Connection to nature
The Albemarle Sound provides almost unlimited opportunities for enjoying the water from swimming to boating to waterskiing, kayaking, and more. But, world-class beaches are just 90 minutes away, and you are surrounded by miles and miles of wetlands, swamps, and forests. This is an outdoorsman’s paradise.
