FAQs for Acqua Tranquillo

Where is the closest beach access?

To get to the beach access, go to the end of Gannett Lane and cross over NC12 (Duck Rd) to Waxwing Ln. Bare to the right onto Waxwing Ct and the walkway is right there. The distance from the house to the beach access is about 400 yards. There is no public parking at the beach access.

How far is the Community Pool?

The community pool is located across the street from the Sanderling Inn on the soundfront. The distance to the pool is less than 1 mile. There is parking at the community pool or there is a sidewalk that runs the length of Duck Rd. through Sanderling to the pool.

Can we use the fitness center for Sanderling?

The fitness center is for Sanderling Inn guests only. However, just north of Sanderling is the Pine Island Fitness Center and that can be used for a daily or weekly fee. Details can be accessed here.

Can I bring a boat?

Yes, but please keep in mind that the water is very shallow in the sound.

How deep is the sound at the private dock?

The sound is shallow around the dock and is most likely not past your knees.

Can you swim in the sound?

Since the water is shallow, it is not a great place to swim but is good for younger children to wade in the water. The water is shallow and there are no waves. However, I would recommend water shoes as the bottom of the sound is very mushy.
