Hatteras & Frisco - Hatteras Island

If you travel about 12 miles south of Buxton, you'll reach the Midgett Realty Hatteras office. Here you'll find a wealth of information about the history of Hatteras Island and the many activities to be found in the villages of Frisco and Hatteras. Frisco, just south of Buxton, is the least developed village on the island in terms of "tourist" activities. However, it is home to unique art galleries and the island's only air strip. If you have never seen Hatteras Island from the air, you'll be missing out if you don't take a "flightseeing trip." As with many of the other areas on the island, families can enjoy windsurfing, kayaking and fishing off the pier or beach in Frisco.

Hatteras is the southernmost village on beautiful Hatteras Island. This village is probably best-known for its world-famous offshore fishing fleet. At several Hatteras marinas, including Hatteras Landing, Teach's Lair Marina, Hatteras Harbor Marina, and Oden's Dock, headboats and charter boats are available to take visitors fishing in the sound, inlet, or even the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf Stream. Each afternoon, crowds gather at the docks to watch the boats and tired but happy fishermen unload their catch of the day. Scuba diving charters for exploring the many shipwrecks off our coast are also available, and visitors also enjoy parasailing and dolphin tours.

Another popular family activity for families staying in our Hatteras beach rentals is to take the free Hatteras Inlet Ferry from Hatteras Village to the quaint fishing village on Ocracoke Island. Ocrocoke Island is a fun place to explore for the day with wide-open beaches, an active marina, charming restaurants and shops, and miles of hiking trails.
