  • Had a great time at Life on a Sandbar. We got our hair braided (which lasted for weeks), hair wraps, and henna tattoos. They also have cute tshirts & accessories, and kids activities. I will definitely go back next time I'm at the beach!
  • We did their sand art, which the kids loved!
  • We came across this shop years ago and struck up a conversation with the owner, who introduced us to their new sand art table... what a brilliant idea! Creates a beautiful plaster sculpture covered in sand and shells to hang on the wall. We have gotten one every year since, and his room is full of memories and really cool hand designed art. They also have a great selection of sun changing bands and jewelry, t shirts, and they do temporary tattoos and hair work. Life on a Sandbar has become one of the must visit shops while on vacation in OBX. Can't wait to go back next year and pick out a new design!
  • This shop is so much fun! The owner was working and was having a blast showing us all their great, sun reactive, product. This is great stuff for playing in the beach sun. From t-shirts to nail polish, to flip flops and keychains you couldn't ask for a better place to find a unique gift to take back home to friends or co-workers! It's great location and friendly-fun atmosphere will make this the first stop in town and last on the way out. I can't recommend Life on a Sandbar high enough. Check it out while you're there!
  • Awesome sand art and del sol shirts.
