Emerald Isle occupies the westernmost 12 miles of Bogue Banks, a barrier island located along the Southern Outer Banks. Known as the Crystal Coast, the entire area boasts a pristine natural environment with excellent water quality. Enjoy great swimming, surfing, or boogie boarding in the Atlantic Ocean, or simply relax with a cold drink and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the most beautiful beach you’ll ever find! Bring the boat, and get ready for great offshore and inshore fishing, take the kids water skiing, wakeboarding, or tubing, or just pull up to a sandbar and soak in the sun, sand, and saltwater! Bring your own or rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, and get away from it all in the calm waters and marshes of Bogue Sound. Whether you’re on the beach or in the sound, don’t be surprised to come across a pod of dolphins, beautiful egrets and ospreys, and perhaps a nesting sea turtle!
When you need a break from all of the fun in, on, and near the water, hop on your bicycle and enjoy more than 11 miles of dedicated bicycle paths, hike the trails at our 43-acre soundfront nature park, take in a summer oceanfront concert, get some delicious ice cream, view the amazing sunset at The Point, or walk (or fish!) along Bogue Inlet Pier! Emerald Isle boasts hundreds of vacation rental units right on the water (and a few rows back) for every taste and every budget, and our first-class rental agencies will strive to meet your every need so you can focus on what you came here for – to enjoy yourself and spend quality time with family and friends!
The Town of Emerald Isle (the town government) strives to provide the highest quality service to our residents and visitors, and is continually working to make Emerald Isle an even better place than it already is! Our tagline is “Nice Matters”, in every way, and it won’t take you long to understand why Emerald Isle is truly the most special place!
