Hatteras Island, NC

Cape Hatteras, then, now, forever.

  •  Hatteras was first used in reference to Pea Island, which was north of the modern day Hatteras Island.  Although the Postal Service gave out many names to the neighboring communities, Hatteras was able to keep its historical name.
  • The village is home to a charter fishing fleet and to the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum.  A popular place to visit is the Ocracoke Ferry Docks at the southern end of the village.  The cost to visit is free but make sure you get there early. In the summer the lines form quickly. You can ride the ferry for about 40 mins on a one-way trip.   You won’t find very many fast food chains here as most of the dining is locally owned and operated.  This village keeps it small town charm and beauty.
