Visit the Best Beaches in NC

Experience the Calm and Serenity of the Beach on Coast Guard Road

To relax and get away from the crowd, check out the beaches on Coast Guard Road. Many of our properties are just a short walk away from this stretch of shoreline. Therefore, these beaches are easily accessible from a golf cart (which many of our rental homes have available for use). The beaches are wider, giving you plenty of room to stretch out and relax on the warm sand. Families love this stretch of beach, as the sandbars along the water create the perfect environment for the little ones to play.

Visit The Point on Emerald Isle, NC

While there are miles of great beaches up and down Emerald Isle’s coast, one of the most famous is called “The Point.” It’s the western-most tip of Emerald Isle that tapers off into a sandbar (the “point”). This beach is a fantastic place for fishing or watersports.
Surf fishing is a time-honored tradition here on Emerald Isle, so make sure to bring your pole. This spot features some of the best NC surf fishing in the area! For those unfamiliar with the term, this refers to fishing from the beach, with your feet in the surf. Take advantage of the abundant Emerald Isle fishing during your stay!
If you’re looking to get out on the water, try paddleboarding. There are plenty of excellent paddleboard rentals in Emerald Isle, NC. It’s an awesome opportunity to see some wildlife, explore some quiet coves, and enjoy some gentle exercise.

Grab a Bite to Eat

Spending a day on the beach is a sure-fire way to work up an appetite. Luckily, there are plenty of incredible Emerald Isle seafood restaurants to visit. Whether you’re looking for unfussy fare or an upscale experience, there’s a local restaurant that will fit the bill. One of our favorite family-friendly joints is Flipperz Family Bar & Grill.
