Emerald Isle NC

Emerald Isle NC

Often it is said that this little island is one of the best kept secrets in the country. Why would that be – no big box stores for shopping, just small shops with interesting items and most of all friendly personnel.  While there is not an abundance of restaurants, there is excellent food. From the traditional fried fish to gourmet dining.   

Located between MCAS Cherry Point and CampLejeune, where the brave Marines who protect and care for are country are stationed, it is only minutes to additional shopping and sightseeing.

You might think there is nothing to do on the island but you will find art shops, free Friday Flicks, scrapbooking workshops, beautiful beaches, festivals and more.  Looking for a spot to settle down and purchase a property or just visit, you will probably love Emerald Isle, NC. Oh, don’t forget the swimming, fishing, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving windsurfing and a short drive to golfing.  

Emerald Isle is a barrier island on the Southern Outer Banks in CarteretCounty. Once a sleepy little island with few residents, it is now a much sought after spot for home buyers and investors.  From condos on the ocean to large, spacious homes, you will be delighted with the large selection of residences to choose from.

Emerald Isle is located on the western 13 miles of the Bogue Banks barrier island and surrounded by water (the Atlantic Ocean and Bogue Sound). It is largely a resort area, buzzing with seasonal activity centered around all things aquatic.

Emerald Isle got its name because it looks (from the air) like a green gem in the middle of a sea of water. A nearby attraction is the N.C. Aquarium located between Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach. The aquarium reopened in 2006 after being closed during a $25 million expansion/renovation
