Hatteras Island continues to be a highly attractive destination for regulars and tourists. The Outer Banks is ranked as the number one beach destination for vacation, even during the Coronavirus pandemic. With there being no chain coffee shops on the Outer Banks, the Turtle has distinguished itself as a staple for customers looking to get their daily brew and specialty drinks. Along with organic coffee, The Dancing Turtle also serves tea, specialty drinks, smoothies, baked goods, breakfast items, snacks, and chocolates. The shop has also increased its line of products over the years, selling clothing, local art, mugs, dog products, and more.
