Explore Hatteras Island at its natural best with a visit to the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. Covering 13 miles of Cape Hatteras National Seashore land, this attraction is hard to miss, although there aren't many giant signs, hotels or businesses to point the way. Instead, visitors will find a completely undeveloped parcel of land, that's well-stocked with gorgeous views and serene nature trails that are ideal for off-the-beaten path excursions.
The Breakwater Inn is located on the very edge of Hatteras Village, and is as favorite destination for anglers, water lovers, and any Outer Banks vacationer who appreciates life on the “edge of the world.” Close to a host of local marinas, a small handful of shops and restaurants, and the Hatteras / Ocracoke ferry, these waterfront accommodations are a great fit for travelers by land or sea who truly want to get away from it all.
The Inn features 21 rooms that boast two queen beds, a microwave, and a mini-fridge, as well as two expansive suites that include a living area, full kitchen, a king bed, and a Jacuzzi. The biggest selling point of Breakwater Inn, however, is the view, and every guest in the soundfront building will enjoy a spectacular nightly sunset over the water. (There are also rooms available just off the water in the “Fisherman’s Quarter - a separate building.) In addition to the vistas, guests will enjoy access to the inn’s seasonally operational community pool, as well as the on-site restaurant, also called the Breakwater. With ample space, picturesque sunsets, and a breathtaking locale in the heart of Hatteras Village, the Breakwater Inn earns its longstanding reputation as a favorite place to stay on Hatteras Island.
