The solitude of Emerald Island is hard to beat. And there are many vacation rental homes along the beach.

You can also start your day off with a nice walk along the beach, with the crisp breeze in your face only a block or two from your vacation rental home. Emerald Island is by no means desolate. There are plenty of funky shops that sell traditional beach trinkets, including T-shirts, toys and water toys for the entire family. If it’s outdoor activities you want, you will find plenty of opportunities for swimming, fishing, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, boating, sailing and more. Kinds love flying kits along these sandy white beaches. You can also enjoy a plethora of sightseeing, shopping, golf and other fun activities.
One of the major benefits of staying in a vacation rental home is the flexibility and the bit of home you get to maintain. Imagine how nice it would be at the end of a fun, active day at the beach to come home to your own bedroom. You and your family will also love spending quality time together watching a movie in the living room. When it’s time for breakfast, open the windows and listen to the Atlantic Ocean and the sounds of birds as you enjoy a home-cooked meal.
There is much to do along this stretch of the southern Outer Banks. You are just down Highway 58 from Atlantic Beach, where locally owned seafood eateries await. And make sure you get out to see the Lighthouse at the Cape Lookout National Seashore, one of seven famous North Carolina lighthouses.
