Why Vacation on Hatteras Island? We Have Tips to Make Your Outer Banks Vacation One of the Best

Why Should You Vacation on Hatteras Island?

From the vast beaches of the Atlantic Ocean to the shores of the Pamlico Sound, Hatteras Island is the ideal location to spend your days surrounded by nature and enticed by opportunities for adventure. Comb pristine beaches for an array of unique shells, scan the horizon for a pod of dolphin or take a refreshing dip in the warm, salty waters of the Atlantic or Pamlico Sound. Keep your eyes peeled for the exquisite birds that call Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge home and watch the pelicans skim the surface of the sea (and maybe stay in one of our beautiful Outer Banks vacation home rentals while you're here!).

Ride the wind in the best kiteboarding and windsurfing location on the East Coast or cruise the warm shallow waters of the Pamlico Sound on a stand up paddleboard. The welcoming waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Pamlico Sound offer miles of accessible shoreline attracting watersports enthusiasts of all skill levels.

Anglers venture to the island year round for unparalleled fishing experiences.  Home to a fleet of charter boats as well as some of the best pier and surf fishing around, Hatteras Island presents anglers with a multitude of opportunities for reeling in the catch of the day.


Hatteras Island prides itself on serving up the bounty of the sea. You will experience seafood prepared to perfection in some of the most charming eateries on the Outer Banks. You won’t find chain restaurants here. Our locally-owned businesses offer unique menus and inviting atmosphere and ambiance to enhance your vacation experience. From sandwiches and wraps in a casual setting to creative entrees and southern coastal cuisine served with a smile, eating out on Hatteras Island won’t disappoint.

Why not spend a warm summer evening in good company, admiring a breathtaking sunset and listening to live music? Enjoy a fruity beverage while sitting on the deck listening to one of our talented local musicians play familiar tunes. We also have a few island venues that have begun to schedule regular entertainment, sometimes welcoming touring artists.

The most compelling reason to vacation on Hatteras Island is for the slow pace, southern hospitality, family-friendly atmosphere, warm waters and beautiful beaches.  Regularly found on Top Ten lists for the Best Beaches in America, Hatteras Island is the ideal destination to create your next vacation memories.
