Next one my tour of must visit beaches of North Carolina, we come to Hatteras Island. Located in Dare County, this island needs no introduction becasue of it`s most famous landmark, one of the most famous in the entire state and on the east coast in fact. The Cape Hatteras Light House. The Lighthouse is so famous the entire island was made into a National Park. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The Island is also the longest island in the Contiguous US at 42 (just a little over 67km) miles long. Another famous aspect of this island is that this is probably where the settlers of the "Lost Colony" moved to after abandoning their colony on Roanoke Island. There is some 70 miles of beaches on this island, on both sides facing the ocean and the Pamlico sound. There are dozens of miles of hiking and biking trails, hundreds of picninc areas and 99% of all its beaches are open year round. Some of the most constant and best winds can be found on this island so Hatteras Island is a mecca for kite flyers, and wind surfers along with paragliding, hang gliding, and kite boarding. The regular surfing, boogie boarding, and skim boarding here is the best on the NC Coast, becasue the winds kick up some great waves. Fishing here is top notch with Hatteras Island being called "The blue marlin capital of the world." Since this island is federally protected there are no resorts. Regular hotels and local inns, plus many rental properties and cottage houses can be found all along the length of the island. There are several museums along the island that showcase everything from artistic work, to wild and marine life, to the history of the island itself; so it can be fun and educational (but don`t tell your kids that). There are many boat charterers along the island that will take out out for a nice fishing trip, or an adventure for the family. There are also dozens of campgrounds that run the length of the island as well. If your looking for a splendid beach to take your vacation on by yourself or the family, Hatteras Island has the most options to choose from. There`s so much to choose from to do you may not be able to get everything on your list to do, finished. It`s that great.
