Emerald Isle NC and Swansboro NC are located just three miles apart but in two different coastal counties, Carteret and Onslow, Emerald Isle in the most western point in Carteret County and Swansboro at the most eastern point in Onslow County, share the treasures of Bogue Sound, the White Oak River and the Atlantic Ocean all at their back doors, which makes for abundant fun.

With a host of activities to do both on water and land these two towns have become premier destinations for both the transient visitor coming by boat via the Intracoastal waterway and the land lubber by car, offering something for everyone from the camper to the condo owner to the oceanfront sand castle homes in Emerald Isle or waterfront homes overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway in Swansboro.
