Photography and Cape Hatteras go hand-in-hand. Miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, sandy barrier islands, and the Pamlico and Roanoke Sounds all work in concert to provide environments ideal for capturing the stunning beauty of nature or the plethora of recreational opportunities enjoyed by visitors.

Cape Hatteras National Seashore also has an official Flickr site (CapeHatterasNPS), which you can follow to keep up with new sights and events from the seashore as we add to our photograph collection.
