  • One of the best Beaches. Good shelling, fishing, bird watching, and just plain relaxing.
  • We as a family have been to Hatteras a few times. First time was awsome. We enjoyed the beach and saw most all of the light houses in the area. Watched the sun go down every night and ate icecream while doing so. Fun, pure fun. Second time it was the same, nothing had changed other then the weather. It was so stinking hot we spent most of the day in the camper. We would go out in the early morning and then again at night to watch the sun go down. Wow hot! But fun! So make sure to check the weather before going, it can get way hot! Many Blessings, Maverick.
