If you want to take “getting away from it all” to the next level, then Hatteras Island is a perfect choice. At the heart of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, first time visitors and veterans alike are amazed at just how much undeveloped beach wilderness exists between the island’s seven village communities. Imagine endless stretches of natural beaches, sand dunes and sea oats, with the Atlantic Ocean gently roaring to the east, and the vast shallow bay of the Pamlico Sound to your west. There’s little in the way of franchises and fast food but don’t confuse “doing without” with “going without.” Instead, think of soulful coastal restaurants and interesting mom-and-pop shops. Hatteras Island is the location where the vision of Little Pink was born and the community has done a beautiful job creating the perfect retreat experience.
The community just gave and gave and GAVE. It restored my faith in humanity.
