Nothing beats an ice-cold beverage while relaxing on the beach. Nothing is worse than reaching for an icy drink and finding your cans swimming. Coolers are essential for family days on the sand. A good modern cooler will keep food and drinks fresh for days. In addition to beverages, fishermen rely coolers to keep bait fresh, and hopefully the catch of the day. Walk onto any beach or pier in North or South Carolina and you’ll see a plethora of cooler models and sizes. Cooler technology has advanced rapidly in modern years. Top-end hard-sided coolers can keep ice frozen for a week. Soft coolers are easier for one person to carry onto a beach, but can still keep food cool for days. Cooler materials and price points vary wildly, so we put together this guide with our recommendations for your coastal vacation.
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.
