PERFECT GET-A-WAY BEACH STYLE HOME ON HARKERS ISLAND.
Harkers Island is the cornerstone of the Crystal Coast and the Southern Outer Banks (SOBX). It is perfectly nestled at the crux of the Outer Banks where the east/west and north/south running barrier islands converge. Constantly under the watchful eye of the Cape Lookout lighthouse, Harkers Island attracted the first settlers hundreds of years ago and still today draws all those desiring the true North Carolina coastal way of life. Sun, sand, sea and surf, throw in a plate of freshly caught seafood and you’ve got Harkers Island!
The area surrounding Harkers Island is appropriately called the Crystal Coast. The crystal clear waters are a diver’s delight and also home to world class fishing and boating.
Harkers Island is protected by two strips of barrier islands. Core Banks to the east and Shackleford Banks to the south. Core Banks is most famous for the Cape Lookout Lighthouse and Shackleford Banks for its wild ponies. Both islands are uninhabited and front the Atlantic Ocean.
On the backside of Core Banks is Core Sound. It is one of the cleanest waterways on the entire eastern seaboard. Core Sound at its widest is about 3 miles across and offers quick access to the ocean via Drum Inlet and Barden’s Inlet.
On the backside of Shackleford Banks is Back Sound. It offers superior fishing and access to the Atlantic Ocean through Barden’s Inlet on the eastern end and Beaufort Inlet on the western end. Beaufort Inlet is a very wide and very deep inlet used by the North Carolina Port Authority.
Inhabited by Coree Indians when settlers first came to this country, Ebenezer Harker later bought the island in 1730. Harkers Island saw a mass migration to the island in 1899 after a series of hurricanes made living on the barrier islands impractical. The residents of these barrier islands sought the safety and protection from the tropical storms that Harkers Island had to offer. People have been moving to the island ever since.
