Make a vacation rental on Emerald Isle, USA your home away from home

Emerald Isle is a barrier island off the North Carolina Coast, towards the southern stretch of the popular Outer Banks. Emerald Isle vacation rentals are favoured for summer beach getaways; with miles of white sandy shore and an excellent range of activities to be enjoyed close by.

Things to do on Emerald Isle, ISA

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.

Emerald Isle self-catering accommodation is also set in one of the best diving areas on the USA’s East Coast. The waters here tend to be warm and there’s a very high concentration of wrecks just off the coast. One of the most popular destinations for a scuba diving trip is a U-352 submarine, while the other wrecks off the outer banks today serve as artificial reefs supporting a wonderful variety of marine life.

An option for a family activity for visitors to vacation rentals on Emerald Isle would be fishing. Here you could go surf fishing or pier fishing, while there are a number of companies based on the area offering chartered trips on the ocean. Other family-oriented attractions close by include crazy golf centres, cinemas and the North Carolina Aquarium, which provides a showcase for the marine life found in the waters around the Outer Banks.
