Where to Enjoy Emerald Isle Night Sky?

The Beach

When you travel to the coast, you have to spend some time observing the night sky from the sand. Our quiet shores are the perfect place to observe the Emerald Isle Night Sky while the crashing waves wash all your worries away. Take a stroll down the beach and feel the sand between your toes while stopping to spot some of the most beautiful constellations.

Bogue Inlet Pier

Stretching into the water for nearly 1,000 feet, Bogue Inlet Pier is an Emerald Isle staple. A stroll on the pier under the night sky is a must for anyone looking to enjoy an evening by the water. Walk to the edge of the pier and look out into the night sky as far as the eye can see or take a seat along the pier, lean back and count how many constellations you can spot. A peaceful stroll along the pier and stargazing is sure to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed!
