Hatteras Island is no longer a secret destination for romance-craved couples in need of a healthy dose of relaxation, intimacy, and seduction, thanks to Nicholas Sparks’ beloved 2002 novel, Nights in Rodanthe. Six years later, Richard Gere and Diane Lane effectively pulled at our heartstrings in the film adaptation, mostly shot here on sunny Hatteras Island. Ever since, sweethearts cannot resist the allure of this peaceful, remote, and undeniably beautiful isle. With the “Month of Love” only days away, we couldn’t think of a better excuse to embark on a well-deserved romantic escape to the Outer Banks, a remote island paradise.
Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a honeymoon, or Valentine’s Day, you’ll both quickly fall in love with Hatteras Island’s idyllic blend of offerings, including its natural beauty, invigorating mid-day pursuits, and oceanfront vacation homes, managed flawlessly by Shore Details. After all, a fairy-tale getaway is a perfect way to say, “I love you.”
Exciting, Tantalizing Island Adventures
There’s never an off-season for romance in the Outer Banks, primarily because Hatteras Island boasts approximately 50 miles of sandy beaches. Greet each day with an Atlantic Ocean sunrise, where the horizon transforms into a kaleidoscope of color, including vibrant hues of amber, canary yellow, mauve, and baby blue (especially when a few clouds momentarily capture the color combinations).
During the daytime, couples typically stroll the beach in search of seashells and sea glass before or after a picnic, an hour of kite flying, and a light beach jog. In the afternoon, climb aboard a majestic steed and gallop along the Atlantic’s sandy shoreline on a guided excursion led by Equine Adventures. Enjoy a flight of craft beer at 1718 Brewing, relish a couple’s massage at In Touch, explore the lush terrain near the Cape Hatteras Light Station, walk through Buxton Woods, and observe thought-provoking local art at Pea Island, Sandcastles, and Sweet Art. Don’t forget to visit Hatteras Landing at dusk to watch a genuinely awe-inspiring Pamlico Sound sunset.
