Home Blog Top 5 Fun Fall Finds on Hatteras Island


Hatteras Island is unique in that it has a different fan base for each season. While folks that come to Hatteras Island certainly love it all year round, most folks are pretty dedicated to the time they choose to visit. This year, for the repeat Fall guests and those who are coming for the first time, we set up a collection of five fun things to try while you’re hanging out on the Island. Some are old, some are new, but all will help you make fond Hatteras Island memories that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.

1)    Lee Robinson’s Sunset Deck, Hatteras Village
Lee Robinson’s General Store is well known for its assortment of unique items. You can find an array of both tasteful and humorous goods and gifts, while also picking up the necessities (Parents, there is an entire wine aisle with your name on it). Perched right on the Pamlico Sound, they have the best view in town and as a courtesy, built their “Sunset Deck”. Peruse the store and grab some snacks, then head out to the deck and take advantage of the view and catch one of Hatteras Island’s most powerful attractions. These sunsets will make your trip to Hatteras one you’re sure to never forget!

2)    Turner’s HIgh Moon Bar, Avon
With 21 craft brews and 8 wines on tap in addition to a full bar, those with a tuned-in palette will certainly appreciate a visit to Turner’s High Moon Bar. Resting in the heart of Avon, this island hot-spot is also the place to be for music lovers. Offering karaoke and a solid line-up of the island’s musical favorites, Turner’s has something to satisfy all of the senses.

3)    Hatteras Yoga, Frisco
New to the island in 2015, Hatteras Yoga has already developed a cult following. When a local island couple decided to open Hatteras Island’s only yoga studio, they took this sandbar by storm, connecting with the yogi in everyone. With a solid schedule, you’ll find an intimate and diverse class that caters to every skill level.

4)    Waves Market Deli, Waves
In a strip mall off of Highway 12 in Waves is an unsuspecting little market/deli that will blow your taste buds away in a matter of seconds. Between their hipster selection of wine and brews and a menu that puts other greasy spoons to shame, you’re sure to be satisfied with your visit to the Waves Market Deli.

5)    Cape Point, Buxton
This seems like an obvious choice as it is one of the number one attractions that Hatteras Island has to offer; however, with the seasons, the atmosphere on the Buxton seashore changes ever-so-slightly from a hot-spot that is buzzing with tourists and kids, to a more laid back scene of surfers and fisherman. As school goes back in session and the air gets cooler, the beach crowds thin out and it becomes more of serene haven than anything. The waves and fish usually peak in the fall, bringing together a laid-back crowd of men and women who are simply enjoying their passion. Cooler temperatures also make climbing the lighthouse a little easier and whether you climb or observe, the scenery is to die for either way!
