Sand Sculpting

Learn how to build an architectural work of art with just sand. Renowned sand sculptor Chip Cooper provides lessons on how to create your very own epic sand structure.


Jeep Rentals

While most of our beaches are easily driveable, our national park requires a 4x4 vehicle to drive on the beach so that you don't get stuck! Don't have one? No problem! Overland America has all your offroading and camping needs so you can explore the world's largest undeveloped barrier island. Overland American provides Jeep, Bronco, and camping equipment rentals.


Surf Camps
