Hatteras Village, North Carolina
With the Gulf Stream just 15 miles away, Hatteras Village is known for some of the best charter fishing off the North Carolina coast. This small town has more marinas than anywhere else on the Outer Banks, including Teach’s Lair, Hatteras Harbor Marina, and Oden’s Dock. Visitors can also board the free NC ferry that departs daily across Hatteras Inlet to neighboring Ocracoke Island. Ideal for boaters and fishermen, Hatteras Village also has an array of galleries, shops, restaurants, and the Hatteras Landing shopping center for fun rainy day activities. With stunning vacation rental homes that have all the modern amenities, (and gorgeous ocean views to boot,) but plenty of down-home charm, Hatteras Village is not your typical Outer Banks beach town.

Hatteras Village Attractions
Populated since the late 1700s, an 1846 hurricane formed the Hatteras Inlet in between Ocracoke and Hatteras Islands, subsequently turning this small beach community into a bustling port town. Since that time, Hatteras Village and excellent fishing have always gone hand in hand. For many years, Hatteras Village was known as the blue marlin capital of the world, as the North Carolina record holding Blue Marlin catch was broken many times over in the Gulf Stream waters off of Hatteras Village.
Today, anglers have their choice of a number of reputable charter boat businesses that head out to the Gulf Stream daily in search of Wahoo, blue and white marlin, dolphin, cobias, pompano, red drum, red snapper, and countless other species of game fish that migrate along the Gulf Stream. The boats return daily to the Hatteras Village docks, and visitors can stroll past the harbors on any given afternoon and watch the day’s catch being brought onto the fishing docks.
Hatteras Village is also home to a number of respected galleries, gift shops, coffee shops, and the Hatteras Island library in the center of the village. A proud and small community, Hatteras Village is home to the annual island Christmas parade. Take a self-guided walking or bike tour through the small residential section of the village, and you’ll be greeted with beautiful historic homes and lavish seasonal gardens.
Despite its quaint character, Hatteras Village is also home to some of the best vacation homes on the Outer Banks. The Hatteras Landing community, offering views of both the Pamlico Sound and Atlantic Ocean, offers luxury accommodations and direct beach access. These grand beach homes are ideal for families who want to stay in lavish accommodations, but still enjoy the quiet charm of the Outer Banks. And trust us; if you're in the market for Cape Hatteras Rentals - ocean front or otherwise - you're in the right place.
