Hatteras Village is known for providing tourists with world renowned deep sea fishing and beautiful ocean beaches. With its wide variety of outdoor recreation, sightseeing and remote relaxation, Hatteras makes a perfect destination for folks that just want to enjoy nature.

Hatteras Fishing and Outdoor Tradition

The name Hatteras often brings to mind the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States (Hatteras Lighthouse at 208 feet tall). The actual lighthouse itself is located in the neighboring village of Buxton, NC. The unincorporated village of Hatteras was named after Hatteras Island which was actually named after the original Native American inhabitants, the tribe Hatteras Tribe.

Hatteras Village is located on the extreme SW end of Hatteras Island but the actual geography takes a little explanation. At the north end of the island you enter by crossing the Bonner Bridge. After exiting Bonner Bridge at the south end you will begin seeing signs mentioning Pea Island. For many years Pea Island and Hatteras Island were separated by an inlet that was created by a hurricane which eventually refilled with sand.

Hatteras offers an odd blend of old time commercial fishing tradition combined with the glitz and glamour of modern sportfishing yachts. No visit to famous Cape Hatteras or Hatteras Village would be complete without witnessing the many deep sea offshore sport fishing yachts rumbling in to unload their catches on the marina's docks after a summer day on the Atlantic Ocean.

With plenty of Hatteras Island tackle shops, restaurants, motels and other tourism related businesses, Hatteras sure makes a very inviting place to enjoy your favorite outdoor activities.
