Where is the Crystal Coast?

The Crystal Coast is south of the Outer Banks, and includes the barrier islands of Harker’s Island, Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores, and Emerland Isle, and extends to the mainland including towns Morehead City and Beaufort.

When is the best time to visit?

There are no bad seasons to visit the North Carolina coast. Summers may be a bit too hot for northern travelers, but it stays much cooler and less humid than Florida. Winters are mild, but the ocean does get too cold for swimming. Luckily, two of our rental homes have heated pools.

The busy seasons are June – August, so you may get better deals if you visit in the shoulder seasons. Easily see open dates using our availability calendar.
