Emerald-Isle is located along North Carolina's Crystal Coast, near Atlantic Beach on the western end of Bogue Banks, with the Bogue Sound dividing it from the mainland. Emerald Isle has long been noted for its family-oriented beaches and salt marshes, and contains an abundance of parks, museums, aquariums and historic tours. The wide, sandy beaches of Emerald Isle are perfect for swimming, sunning and shelling, while other activities in the area include boating and sailing, fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, golf and camping. Readers of "Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine" have rated the North Carolina coast as North America's best wreck diving destination, and the clear, warm waters just off the coast offer exciting dive opportunities for all skill levels. Birdwatchers also love Emerald Isle where they are enchanted by an abundance of pelicans, gulls, herons and egrets. Fort Macon State Park and the historic town of Beaufort are just 15 minutes away, and the unspoiled, deserted beaches of Cape Lookout National Seashore are nearby. Whatever your expectations for a relaxing, fun-filled beach vacation, Emerald Isle is sure to have it. Don't forget your camera - you'll want to capture the magic of Emerald Isle on film to enjoy for years to come.

Emerald Isle Weather & Climate

Latitude accounts for some climatic variations in the state of North Carolina, as do soils, plant cover and inland bodies of water. The Gulf Stream has some direct effect on temperatures, as well, especially on the immediate coast. Coastal fronts are common during the winter months, and can push inland, bringing warmer than expected temperatures to the coastal areas. However, at times the cold Labrador Current passes between the Gulf Stream and the North Carolina coast, offsetting most of the general warming effect the Gulf Stream might otherwise have on coastal temperatures. The meeting of the two opposing currents sometimes provides a breeding ground for rough weather. Summer air temperatures along the immediate coastline are lower than those even a few miles inland. Tropical hurricanes come close enough to North Carolina to influence the weather about twice in an average year.
