Hatteras Island Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 65 photos

Hatteras Island is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is the place where the warm Gulf Stream coming north meets the cold currents coming south, making treacherous shoals. Cape Hatteras has a wealth of history relating to shipwrecks, lighthouses, and the U.S. Lifesaving Service

On the island, one of the most well known landmarks is the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in Buxton, NC.

In addition to Hatteras itself, and Buxton, other Hatteras Island towns include Rodanthe, Avon, Waves and Salvo
