Summer on the Outer Banks is amazing! Great weather, amazing beach time, and so many events makes the OBX super appealing during the warmer months; especially in June! See why you and your family should plan your vacation during the first official month of Summer!

Lower Rates
Luxury homes like Atlantic Breeze #5411 are available at cheaper rates at the beginning of the season!

During June, rates for vacation rental homes haven’t gone up to peak season prices. You still get warm, summer weather without the expense of renting a home during the middle of the season!

Less Crowds

In the beginning and middle of June, many schools haven’t let out for the summer yet so you get first dibs on houses, less wait time at restaurants, and more space to set up your spot on the beach! What more could you ask for?

Less Traffic

Less people means less traffic. During June, your drive to the Outer Banks (and back home) will be much quicker than traveling during the peak of summer! Plus, with our guide on how to avoid traffic, you’ll be out of the car and on the beach soaking up the sun in no time!

Amazing Weather

Did we mention how amazing the weather is during the beginning of summer? It’s not nearly as humid as the July and August months so you can genuinely enjoy being outdoors! The average temperature on the Outer Banks in June ranges from 83º and breezy during the day and 70º at night, it’s the perfect temperature to get out and explore or lounge on the beach.

The Best Time To Swim

With warm, comfortable weather comes warm, calm waters! The ocean temperature in June ranges from the low to mid 70s which is perfect for cooling off after lying in the sun! When the winds come up from the gulf stream, warm, clear waters appear! It’s the best time to get to the beach and take a dip.
