Forget Montana. Hatteras Island is big sky country, and anyone who has settled on a beach blanket under a canopy of stars would agree. Nature loving night owls adore the island for its peaceful, quiet evening with nothing but the sound of the ocean in the background. So what is there to do in the great outdoors after dark?
Believe it or not, Hatteras Island nights can be just as lively as Hatteras Island days.
The basics of bonfires: Bonfires are perfectly legal on Hatteras Island, provided that the fire is below the high tide line, accompanied by an adult, and completely extinguished after you leave the site. Make sure you do not leave behind any litter that will not burn completely, particularly any glass or metal. Local grocery stores and many convenience stores sell firewood for your beach fire, or you can simply bring some from home.
