Experience the Untamed Natural Beauty of Hatteras Island in Rodanthe
If you are searching for simplicity on your vacation or simply want to enjoy the waterfront delights of the Outer Banks, then look no further than the charming community of Rodanthe for your next getaway.
Located on Hatteras Island within the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Rodanthe’s shores remain in their natural barrier island state and offer a serene, stunning environment from which to enjoy water sports of every imaginable variety.
Windsurfing and kiteboading are particularly popular on the soundside since the waters of Pamlico Sound are shallow and the winds are almost constantly blowing. However, you can also launch jet skis and sailboats into the sound by using a company like Rodanthe Watersports or you can head over to the Atlantic Ocean for an invigorating swim or kayaking excursion in the open water.
A relaxing day outside your Rodanthe vacation rental can also be found at the popular Hatteras Island Fishing Pier. This 850 ft. beach landmark offers great fishing for bass, tarpon, and red drum and is the perfect place to bask in the spectacular Outer Banks weather and watch the anglers at work.
While recreational activities will certainly fill up the majority of your itinerary, be sure to set aside some time to visit the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station. As the most complete site of all the remaining life-saving stations in the country, it offers original structures that were set up to attend to shipwrecks and save lives and a fascinating museum that details some of the heroic rescues.
