Emerald Isle Beach can be thought of stretching in a continuous ribbon of white sand from The Point at the western end of the island to Indian Beach approximately halfway down its length. That makes Emerald Isle Beach roughly 9 miles long.

Emerald Isle Beach has previously taken the crown as the best beach in North Carolina as voted for by the readership of USA Today, and with good reason. A great destination for families, couples and solo travellers, there’s plenty of opportunity for relaxing on Emerald Isle Beach’s soft sands.

Pleasant at any time of day, sunrises and sunsets are particularly magical, while during the middle hours of the day visitors can busy themselves with everything from birding and fishing from the historic pier to paddleboarding and hiking.
