Head farther down N.C. Highway 12 to Hatteras Island, and you’ll find a vacation destination with less traffic, charming villages and warmer ocean water plus many authentic experiences and opportunities to discover a new Outer Banks Happy Place.
Amazingly, many seasoned OBX regulars – even ones who may have climbed the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse a time or two – have yet to stay “down south.” If you’ve always vacationed in Duck or Nags Head, it might not occur to you to look any farther. But for those who do, new traditions are born.
The beauty of this 50-mile-long island is legendary, and its serene, crowd-free beaches are regularly selected as one of America’s Top 10 family vacation destinations. And those in the know will tell you that Hatteras vacations are budget friendly.
Surf or Sound Realty specializes in premier Hatteras Island vacation rental homes of every size and for every budget – large oceanfront estates with all the amenities to small soundside hideaways and everything in between. Let them help you find your Hatteras Happy Place today.
