Vacationing on Hatteras Island will transform any Outer Banks vacation into an experience filled with lasting vacation memories. The natural beauty of the area and miles of undeveloped, secluded beaches create a more laid-back vacation experience. The seven unique villages of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Frisco, Buxton, and Hatteras Village offer something for everyone. Funky local boutiques and surf shops, family owned coffee shops, and a world renown watersports hotspot are just a few of the distinctions of the island. With some of the same offerings an OBX vacationer will find at the northern part of the Outer Banks, the relaxed vibe that Hatteras Island provides is almost unexplainable.  There is just something serene about taking a drive along HWY 12 through each Hatteras Village, with the ocean to your East and the sound to your West, that calms the mind and soul.

Begin planning your next Hatteras Island vacation in one of Resort Realty’s vacation rental homes. From rustic beach bungalows to oceanfront Hatteras retreats, we are certain your family will enjoy every minute of their Hatteras Island vacation.
