Pamper Yourself – Relax at a Spa by the Sea
When you are on vacation, of course you want to relax. It’s a time to unwind and rejuvenate, taking in each precious day to renew your mind, body and spirit. While there is no doubt the fresh ocean air and beautiful water we have here on the beach will help you, there are more ways to pamper yourself while on vacation.
Luckily, the Outer Banks has some fabulous spas that use the same resources we love about our ocean environment in their practices – not to mention offering breathtaking views of the water. Whether you are seeking a massage, body treatments or facial, you are sure to be surrounded by tranquility, beauty and renewed peace as you spend a day at a spa by the sea.
