Home to the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse and the stomping grounds of pirates from centuries past, Hatteras Island offers true coastal southern charm. The island is made up of a variety of villages including Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Kinnakeet, Buxton, Frisco, and Hatteras Village. Each village has its own unique style, but they all make it exceptionally easy to take in the natural beauty of the Outer Banks.
No other part of the Outer Banks makes it so easy to enjoy our windswept coastline. With much of Hatteras Island surrounded by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, finding your very own spot on the beach or soundside is as easy as parking your car and running over the dunes. Fishermen and water sports enthusiasts love visiting Hatteras Island due to its excellent inshore fishing, gulf stream accessibility, and quality waves that are common to the area.
Like much of the Outer Banks, Hatteras Island is made up of a narrow barrier island that separates the Pamlico Sound from the Atlantic Ocean. With the sound and the ocean so close together, many Hatteras Island properties enjoy views of both the sound and Atlantic in addition to easy beach access.
Hatteras is home to its very own elementary school and secondary school. The secondary school was recently renovated, features beautiful facilities, and offers special coastal studies programs.
