The key attraction for visitors to Emerald Isle vacation accommodation is the wonderful coastline. Within walking distance you’ll have a number of different access points to some of the best Atlantic beaches for hundreds of miles. In addition to taking a dip there are a host of ways to make the most of the ocean. You could go kayaking, or hire a boogie board.

The waters here tend to be warm and there’s a very high concentration of wrecks just off the coast.
