Island Creek is a great launch for access to the reef on SW, N, and NW winds. Launch behind Windsurfing Hatteras, especially if you know someone renting one of the many houses behind here. Sailing best on S, SW, N, NW, & NE winds. Look out for a few jetskis and kiters here as Windsurfing/Kiteboarding Hatteras conducts lessons here.
The houses all line up along the Pamlico Sound and share a large grassy area bounded by a short bulkhead. You can rest your water toys on the bulkhead for easy pickings.
