Between spending time on the beach and in your gorgeous Spinnaker’s Reach rental home, you may find yourself craving some retail therapy. One of the best parts about staying in Emerald Isle is the lack of big-box stores and chain shops. Instead, you’ll find more locally owned establishments that carry quality goods. You can feel good about spending the afternoon shopping in Emerald Isle!
The Best Places to Go Shopping in Emerald Isle
Swell Surf Shop
If you plan on spending any time at the beach, you’ll want to head to Swell Surf Shop. They have everything you may need (and some stuff you might not need, but you’ll definitely want!) for a day in the sun. You can grab a cute new outfit, sunglasses, and some sunblock all in one trip. Plus, they offer surfboards, standup paddleboard, skimboard, bodyboard, and skateboard rentals as well! Essentially, if it’s a compound word with “board,” you can find it in their inventory. You can also book surfing or SUP lessons from them as well. Paddling around Emerald Isle is one of our favorite ways to sightsee, so we encourage all of our guests to try this relaxing activity during their next getaway.
If you want to spend your day on Emerald Isle like a local, go surf fishing. It’s a time-honored activity around these parts. Early in the morning, it’s common to see a scattering of visitors and residents alike with their feet in the sand and their line in the water. If you don’t want to haul your reel and tackle to Emerald Isle, you can stop by Reel Outdoors. They have a wide selection of fishing supplies, accessories, and equipment. If you need it, they probably have it. Learn more about Emerald Isle fishing on our blog!
There are dozens of reasons to visit Elly’s Gifts, but the one that tops most of our lists is the fudge! If you have a sweet tooth or you’re looking for a gift for a chocoholic back home, you’ll find just what you need in their shop. They also carry a selection of gifts, decor, and apparel, so you’ll have no trouble purchasing something for everyone back home!
If you’re hoping to treat yourself while on vacation, head to J.R. Dunn Jewelers! They’ve been offering top-notch jewelry with friendly service since 1988. The staff there is excited to work with you to find your next favorite watch, bracelet, set of earrings, or necklace.
Another great store in town is La Posh. Here, you’ll find trendy clothes, accessories, and a nice selection of understated earrings, bracelets, and watches. If you find browsing relaxing, you’ll definitely want to explore the racks of items at this chic boutique!
