The Duck Tape Beach House

                            Directions & Map

Duck Tape is located at 138 Dune Road, Duck NC. 

For those of you familiar with Duck, we are located Oceanside, almost directly across the street from Tommy's Gourmet Market (the blue market).

The entire length of street is (from Currituck Sound to Atlantic Ocean) is around 1/2 mile.  We are just about 3/4 way down the street towards the ocean.  You can walk to the Sound or the Ocean in under 5 minutes.  You do, however, have the option to park at the Ocean if you wish – or use the handy wagon we have at the house.  

We are close enough that it’s an easy walk for bathroom breaks!  You are essentially in the town of Duck so shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance. 

The map below will provide you with easy driving directions.  If you are flying in, the best airport is Norfolk...and we are about 1hr 15 minutes from the Norfolk airport.
