Getting to the beach is a breeze for both adults and children alike on the Corolla Light trolleys. The trolley stop is at the entrance of the Mirage complex and will take you all over the resort. Be sure to wear your wristband so that our drivers may readily identify you as a resort guest. Two open air and one handicap accessible air conditioned trolley run every 20-25 minutes, 9 AM - 6 PM during the busy season.  Check the map and schedule below.



The Mirage complex is a short walk away from the beach. From the condo entrance, turn right and walk towards the pond.  There is a pathway through the woods.  Once you get to Corolla Drive, you walk on the Sturgeon boardwalk to the beach.   Additionally, if anyone wants a shorter walk, there is public parking at the corner of the Sturgeon walkway and Whalehead Drive.  During the high season, there is a lifeguard set up at the entrance to the beach.

We provide beach chairs, an umbrella, a beach wagon, and other beach accessories as well.  


Oceanside Pools & Complex

Corolla Light's oceanside complex is one of its best features.  There are three pools, basketball courts, a volleyball court, two playgrounds, a shuffleboard court, and a restaurant. Throughout the summer, there are always activities going on, including cornhole tournaments, yoga, etc.

To get to the complex, you can either walk (~1 mile) on the sidewalks, the beach, take the trolley, or park in the parking lot.




The Sound

Pool, Sunsets, and Nature Walk

Fun isn't only available while on beach.  The sound provides ample opportunity for fun in the sun.  The soundside pool tends to be less crowded, tennis courts are very close to the condo, and you can take in beautiful sunsets from the pier at the edge of the nature trail which is marked in green. 

Additionally, the blue bike and walking path connects you to the Corolla Lighthouse and beyond.


Sports Complex

Corolla Light's 36,000 square foot sports center is the second largest fitness center on the Outer Banks.  Free weight row, a circuit room, a cardio room, a racquetball court, two tennis courts, a 25 yard heated pool, and a 12 person jetted spa.  The locker rooms include showers and a sauna.  


The sports complex is right across the street from the Mirage complex and is where you will pick up your parking passes and wristbands. 

More Activities

There are hundreds of things to do in the Outer Banks during your stay, we can't mention them all.  But we have added a few extra items that you may not realize is here.  Hopefully, some of these activities are up your alley. If you are coming in the offseason, as with everything, check to make sure what is open.
