Emerald Isle Travel Resources

If you’re looking for a place to relax with your family, Emerald Isle, North Carolina is just the destination! Located on North Carolina’s Crystal Coast, Emerald Isle has made it their chief effort to maintain an inviting and safe atmosphere for families with children.
 
The beaches in this coastal community are world class, indeed. The Point is the spot to go if you want to share a breath taking sunset with your loved one, and Hammocks Beach State Park is a great place to take the kids. Hammocks has a snack bar and restrooms, so traveling with young ones is totally manageable.
 
Water activities are also a popular activity in Emerald Isle. Kayaking off the point, or scuba diving just offshore, and even renting some jet skis and touring the coastline – whatever you want to do on the water, you can do it here. But the primary aquatic attraction is the fishing! Some of the world’s best fishing takes place here – both offshore and inshore.
 
So, grab your beach towels and your fishing rods, and use the Emerald Isle Travel Resources below to plan your trip to this beautiful location.
