Emerald Isle, North Carolina
Emerald Isle’s reputation as a “Family Beach” is well deserved and continues year after year to lure families looking for a peaceful ocean vacation to remember!

Bogue Banks Island is 30 miles long, with Atlantic Beach at the easternmost end and Emerald Isle on the westernmost end. Emerald Isle residents and visitors of Emerald Isle enjoy a relaxed ocean atmosphere with enough to keep from being bored on rainy days, but not so much that you get the carnival feel that exists in many larger ocean resort areas.
