Atlantic Beach, NC
Atlantic Beach is the oldest of five resort towns along the Bogue Banks of North Carolina's coast. Known as the "Crystal Coast," it's the kind of place that remains in your memory throughout the year as a peaceful vacation oasis. Walk down the boardwalk from your villa to the white, sandy beach where you can rent a chair and umbrella for the day. Once you've soaked in the sun and splashed in the sea, wash the salt and sand away and head into the surrounding communities for delightfully fresh local seafood. Whether you like to swim, bask in the sun, sail or fish, Atlantic Beach is the perfect spot for a family trip, a romantic escape, or a beach bum's ideal vacation.
Festivals on the Crystal Coast
In the fall months on the Crystal Coast we look forward to many of our favorite area events like the Crystal Coast Super Boat Grand Prix on the Morehead City waterfront, and the the North Carolina Seafood Festival- the largest in North Carolina. September 17-19 is the weekend of the Super Boat Grand Prix with the Seafood Festival following closely the first full weekend in October. Fall is a much quieter time for the Crystal Coast which means it's time to rejuvenate from our busy tourist season. The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is a great place to find a local fair of sea life and the Maritime Museum in Beaufort is also open year round with displays from "Queen Ann's Revenge", believed to be Blackbeard's flag ship curiously located off the Beaufort coast.
Please be aware that we are current in the process of constructing a safety fence around our basketball court. The noise and clean up are being kept at a minimum, and we appreciate your understanding as we complete our construction.
