Our absolute favorite place for healthy breakfast or a healthy treat or pick me up! MUST TRY!! If yoinked never had an açaí bowl, this is the place to try one. Our dearest friends created, hand built and opened the shop 2 years ago and it was an instant local hit. Sustainable coconut utensils and bowls! Recommendations: Sweet Nectar smoothie and ANY açaí bowl combination (go green!) I get their ice cream for our son as well as pups all the time as they are banana based and no sugar added! Perfect healthy treat for the kids!

Amazing food and atmosphere. One of my favorites restaurants! Great vegan and vegetarian menu for the island (the island is generally not very accommodating to special menus) Views of the sound and in a great little shopping boardwalk. Homemade Kombucha, micro brew local beers and other selections. Great Local products. Recommendation: Kombucha, cocktails, baked Brie, poached pear salad ❤️🤤

Waterfront at the end of Hatteras island on the Marina. I must say, their food has been off and on the past few years as they keep changing chefs and menus BUT this is definitely somewhere to check out if you’re in Hatteras, weve had some of our most memorable and most enjoyable meals on the island here, it’s continuously our favorite there even with the inconsistencies at times. Fantastic drink menu as well. Expect a wait so I recommend arriving right as they open or a little before to be first in line!

Don't let this gas station fool you, they have THE best homemade breakfast sandwiches on the entire island. My favorite: fried pork chop, egg and cheese smothered in sausage gravy on a biscuit!

Drinks & Nightlife

We love this bar! It’s quaint, yet a local go-to and always has something going on. Love music, karaoke, games, shuffle board. Their bar menu is surprisingly fantastic, the best bar food menu I’ve ever had in the area! Also, get the soaked pineapples if they are available...amazing!!

We took our whole family here when they visited and it was equally challenging and fun for everyone age ranging from 8-75!! It was a great family time and so much fun. Don’t go on a windy day!! And go early or late before or after the heat and sun get brutal.

Smaller aquarium which is nice for little kids as it’s not too overwhelming. Turtle rescue on sight. We really enjoy taking our 2 year old here on rainy days.

I recommend this place as a bit of history mixed with some nature hikes. It’s small but a very nice stroll if you go early in the season before crowds come in. If you’re lucky enough to be here before the season starts, it’s a perfect quiet stroll through the park with some historic landmarks and informational posts scattered throughout. We have not personally been to the lost colony play, but have heard it’s fun for kids and families.

Parks & Nature

Peace and Quiet. Beaches are peaceful and empty. Great spot to fish and hang out, sightsee some birds and wildlife and even turtle nests.

The wild horse beaches are always a fan favorite! I recommend renting a Jeep and exploring on your own vs a tour. Go to the beach, then drive about 2 miles then start exploring the beach and back roads over the dunes and you’ll spots lots of horses! Please stay at least 50ft from the horses as it is dangerous to their health to feed or allow them to get close to humans...they are wild horses with a different diet than domestic horses, feeding them or getting too close will cause park service to have to remove them from the wild! Please please please respect this and these beautiful animals...we are one of the few places left with wild mustangs, we’d like to keep it that way.

Their children's water park area is great! My 3 year old has an absolute blast here. If you have smaller children I recommend going from 3-6pm for the discount rate as well as getting out the peak summer sun.

Like the book/movie "Nights in Rodanthe"? The famous house is within viewing distance from the rental. Walk over our beach access, stand on top of the dune and to your right will be the famous house.
