Directions to Emerald Isle, North Carolina

Emerald Isle is located at the southwestern tip of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The island is the last inhabited island in the barrier island chain, and is flanked by two large uninhabited islands, giving Emerald Isle a true island feel.

Emerald Isle is a part of the Crystal Coast, a 24 mile long island home to Emerald Isle, Indian Beach, Salter Path, Pine Knoll Shores and Atlantic Beach. The island is serviced by two causeways at the eastern and western ends of the island. Because of the easy access to the island, you will find that getting on and off the island during the summer months is without the traffic congestion you normally encounter with other parts of the Outer Banks.
