Now Accepting Donations for our Local Coast Guard Stations

Keeping Watch 24/7

For over 50 years, the U.S Coast Guard Stations at Fort Macon & Emerald Isle have been patrolling our waters and saving lives along the North Carolina Coast. Coast Guard Base Fort Macon itself is comprised of over 200 active duty personnel, 85 reservists, and over 1,200 auxiliary members.

In need of our help

We are approaching the month-long mark of the Government Shutdown. Based in the lapse of Federal Funding, enlisted members in the U.S Coast Guard are still required to work without pay. This has a significant impact in the everyday lives of thousands of people, so we want to do what we can to help enrich the lives of the men and women who serve to keep us protected along the waterways we all enjoy. These crews work around the clock to keep watch of our oceans and keep us safe. With a lapse in funding, not only are the home-lives of these Guardsmen effected- but the duty stations are in need of supplies as well.

Items Needed Include:

  • Ingredients for spaghetti, other pasta dishes
  • Chicken breast
  • Hamburger and buns
  • Hot dogs and buns
  • Prepared meals like: lasagna, pizzas
  • Canned soups
  • Pretzels, chips, crackers
  • Granola bars, cereal, muffins
  • Eggs, milk, sausage/bacon
  • Gatorade, juice, milk, coffee

Please bring your donations to either of our Bluewater Real Estate Offices and we will coordinate with the Coast Guard stations for delivery. We thank you for your help, and thank the hardworking Coast Guard community for their commitment to serving our country.

Downtown Swansboro

Downtown Swansboro

We have lived in the Swansboro area for almost 3 years now and have yet to cruise the streets of downtown. I know, shame on us. So this weekend, we decided to cruise on through downtown Swansboro to see what was there. It did not disappoint.

We started off our epic journey climbing to the top of Bake Bottle Brew to check out the scenery, which you can see is AMAZING. Sadly, we did not partake in the brew because we were backpacking our new little nugget. Strictly a family adventure.

We have yet to eat at Yana’s, a very homey Elvis Presley-themed family eatery. Their crowds were out the door this weekend. But, we have been meaning to pop into the BORO cafe and try their tasty items. A friend of ours mentioned they had some of the best food in Swansboro. And they did not disappoint. My husband and I scooted Jett into the quaint establishment and somehow found the self-control to bypass the pastry counter.

Our waitress, Alice, was so excited to share with us that we came on a great day. On Saturdays and Sundays, the BORO serves brunch. These words to me are HEAVEN. Who doesn’t like breakfast in the afternoon? Apparently, my husband was not as excited as I, being that he ordered the flat-bread.

Crystal Coast Towns You Should Know

popular crystal coast towns

Welcome to the Crystal Coast!

The Crystal Coast is located in Carteret County, North Carolina – covering over 100 miles of shoreline! Our coast is known for its rich history, pristine beaches, nationally recognized fishing tournaments, incredibly fresh seafood and restaurants, and local southern charm. The Crystal Coast is made up of larger mainland towns, Bogue Banks beach towns, and the “Down East” community that still holds deep roots in our fishing culture.

Crystal Coast Towns You Should Know

Bogue Banks is comprised of five townships – Emerald Isle at the western end of the island, followed by Indian Beach, Salter Path, Pine Knoll Shores, and Atlantic Beach at the eastern end of the island. Located just east of Bogue Banks are Cape Lookout National Seashore and Shackleford Banks, where you can catch a glimpse of the wild island ponies, explore and collect shells and even climb the Cape Lookout Lighthouse!

Take a glimpse into our most visited Crystal Coast towns and the small townships of Bogue Banks!

Swansboro




One of the Crystal Coast towns you should know is Swansboro! The home of Hammocks Beach State Park, the “Friendly City by the Sea” offers a historic downtown district overlooking the water. The quaint village atmosphere and the historic downtown area offer shopping in an area alive with restaurants, boutiques, gift shops, and waterside parks. Host to the Arts by the Sea Festival, the Mullet Festival, and multiple fishing tournaments – Swansboro offers some of the best hospitality on the North Carolina coast.

Emerald Isle




One of our very favorite Crystal Coast towns is Emerald Isle. The outdoorsy adventurous guests that visit Emerald Isle are in heaven with activities like surfing, kayaking, kiteboarding, and paddleboarding. Families can enjoy miles of walking, jogging and bike paths, and several nature trails that allow you to enjoy the naturally pristine environment with a variety of birds, waterfowl, and families of whitetail deer.  The Point in Emerald Isle is not to be missed when visiting the western shores of Bogue Banks; the sunsets are breathtaking!

Pine Knoll Shores




The wide beaches and sound side access make it easy to swim, go shelling, clamming, or kayaking along this beautiful stretch of the island.  The North Carolina Aquarium is located in Pine Knoll Shores and offers a variety of marine species including fish, crabs, seahorses, lionfish, and sharks. The sea turtle nursery features an albino turtle named Nimbus! Nature trails offer a walk above a tidal marsh where marine creatures live and shorebirds wade looking for food. All in all, it’s a tranquil way to spend the afternoon.

Indian Beach



Indian Beach is conveniently located in the middle of Bogue Banks.  Its location allows easy access to the sights and sounds of Morehead City and Emerald Isle, as well as restaurants &  shopping.  But above all, you’ll enjoy the quiet calming expanse of soft sands and lush maritime forest.

Salter Path



Salter Path is one of those Crystal Coast towns that doesn’t get enough credit. Known for its history as an old fishing village, Salter Path is different because it is home to a large dune system, excellent beaches, breathtaking soundfront views, and even a small maritime forest. Family beach cottages are easy to spot as you cruise through Salter Path. Be sure to stop and take some time to take in Bogue Sound as it sparkles a magnificent blue on a bright sunny day.

Atlantic Beach




Want to be transported back in time a bit? Then Atlantic Beach is one of those Crystal Coast towns to add to your list! Atlantic Beach has a retro “beach-town” feel of days past and has been North Carolina’s “go-to” beach since the 1930s. Located at the eastern end of Bogue Banks, Atlantic Beach features a laid back friendly feel with wide sandy beaches, a boardwalk, and a commercial district with plenty of dining and shopping options. Nature trails, public parks, and beach accesses will draw you in. Atlantic Beach is also home to Fort Macon State Park, a historic Civil War fort, which is the most visited state park in North Carolina.

Morehead City




Downtown Morehead City has an alluring waterfront appeal, lined with charter boats, legendary seafood restaurants, charming shops all overlooking Sugarloaf Island. The Big Rock Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament is held annually in June with crowds, Beaufort, NC gathering daily at the weigh station to see which boat will bring in the biggest blue! Also home of the North Carolina Seafood Festival, held every year the first weekend in October. Vendors line the waterfront with all types of seafood & arts and crafts, along with kid’s rides and activities! Families can also enjoy watching the Morehead City Marlins play baseball at Big Rock Stadium. With multiple shopping centers throughout Morehead City, there’s something for everyone!

Beaufort




Beaufort, the 3rd oldest town in North Carolina, is known for its Bahamian and West Indian style architecture and its close ties with a notorious pirate. It offers a beautiful sandy shore as well as stunning waterfront views and many specialty shops and delicious restaurants downtown. You can watch the feral horses from the banks of Beaufort or board a ferry to see them in their unspoiled habitat. Hop atop the red, English Double-Decker bus for a tour around this historic fishing village to see Blackbeard’s home and the mysterious Old Burial Ground. You’ll see exactly what makes this coastal community so special and why it was voted Best Small Town in the USA in 2012.
