Visit Stunning Beaches Near Raleigh, NC

Locals know the Crystal Coast as home to some of the best beaches in North Carolina. This stretch of land features 85 miles of gorgeous coastline. There are plenty of gorgeous beaches along this section of land, like the Cape Lookout National Seashore, Hammocks Beach State Park, and Atlantic Beach. One town in particular, however, stands out from the rest.

Emerald Isle is a cozy town located along the Bogue Banks (the southernmost section of the Crystal Coast). Named for the lush trees that once covered this beautiful island, Emerald Isle features gorgeous beaches, fantastic restaurants, and plenty of great family-friendly attractions that are sure to entertain all your traveling companions.

Stay Minutes from the Beach

The most important part of planning your vacation to Emerald Isle is finding the perfect accommodations. You want to stay somewhere that’s quiet, comfortable, with a gorgeous view, and is (most importantly) just minutes from the water. When you stay in a home from Spinnaker’s Reach, you’ll have access to the beaches along Coast Guard Road. This stretch of shore is less crowded than The Point, which is the more popular spot in town. The Coast Guard Road beaches are the perfect place to relax with a good book and watch as the little ones enjoy playing in the sand and the surf.

If you’re looking for suggestions of things to do at the beach with kids, we can help! Upon check-in, every guest of Spinnaker’s Reach will receive a fun guide that includes a great scavenger hunt that is fun for kids of all ages.
