Area Information in Emerald Isle, NC

Emerald Isle

Emerald Isle, N.C., is a thriving beach-vacation spot, with plenty to do for the entire family. For more than 50 years, the island has drawn vacationers who come to rent on a short-term basis, attracted by the quality of the water, the miles of unspoiled beaches, the abundance of wildlife and all the friendly people. Everything you want from a seaside vacation is here. You’ll find not only a quiet, family-oriented environment but also activities for all ages and interests and fantastic restaurants and shops. Many people who stay here once come back to purchase a second home, and many have made the move to make this quality of life permanent.

Background knowledge of an area is important whether you’re making a decision to travel for fun, relocate or start a business. For that reason, this section introduces you to the history and economic climate of the Emerald Isle area. Our Getting Around section tells you how to get to Emerald Isle, whether by plane, by boat or by your own vehicle, and how to get around once you’ve arrived here. Access to Emerald Isle from the mainland is across the Cameron Langston Bridge, which spans the Intracoastal Waterway and from the top offers a great view of the waterway and Bogue Banks.

We’ve even included a Media section, in hopes that the local radio stations, television stations, magazines and newspapers may aid you in enjoying the Crystal Coast beaches to their fullest potential.
