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.



The history of Cape Hatteras National Seashore is rich with stories from the earliest settlements to modern times. Take a deeper dive into some of these stories in these short videos.


We have included some of our favorite photographs of the places, activities, and people of the seashore in the following galleries. 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.
