Hatteras Village is the southernmost community on Hatteras Island. The name Hattaras was used by the Fort Raleigh colonists in reference to Pea Island north of modern day Hatteras Island. Croatoan was an area described in Algonkian Indian tongue as west of what is now Cape Hatteras. The village of Hatteras retained its historical name, while the U.S. Postal Service reassigned many of the neighboring communities in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Today, the Outer Banks village is home to a renowned charter fishing fleet, and home to the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum, where the remnants of the original Fresnel lens that once shone bright atop the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is now displayed, having been recently reunited with its original rotating pedestal. There are numerous artifacts and displays there, and even a gift shop too.

The Ocracoke Ferry Docks at the southern end of the village are a popular place. It doesn't cost anything to make a day trip to nearby Ocracoke Island and the village of Ocracoke, but get there early.
