The owners and staff of The Paper Canoe work hard to “make your vacation taste better.” This charming restaurant near Sanderling is best known for its stunning waterfront setting, its always evolving menu and its fresh ingredients, including local-caught seafood and home-grown vegetables from the chef’s own backyard.

This dedication to its dishes, “prepared simply and with passion,” is coupled with PC’s commitment to your dining experience, “from the time you walk in the door.”

Featured are their handmade pastas, wood-fired pizzas and other rustic wood oven specialties along with “an ever-changing chalkboard of daily selections.”

Also an Ale House and Wine Bar, Paper Canoe offers ten craft beers on draught and an extensive and reasonably-priced selection of wines.

Along with excellent recommendations as a great destination for wedding rehearsal dinners, comments posted on Facebook include “best meal out of several weeks” - “fantastic” - “great view and incredible food” -  and pretty much sum up the kind of experience you’d expect when dining at the Paper Canoe in North Duck.

The restaurant is open from 5-10 pm every day except Sunday during the season. Off-season hours may vary slightly. Reservations and walk-ins are welcome and attire is “dressy.”

Kite Point

Kite Point

Ask any crowd of visiting kiteboarders about Kite Point, and they'll readily give you exact directions to this unmarked but internationally renowned soundside beach. Located in between Avon and Buxton villages abutting the Pamlico Sound, Kite Point literally went from deserted strip of sandy soundfront to world-class kiteboarding Mecca within the span of a decade.
