Beachside Fun in Emerald Isle & More

Once you're here and settled into your Emerald Isle vacation rental, the next step is switching into vacation mode and preparing yourself for some fun and relaxation. There is plenty of fun to be had on the beaches of Emerald Isle on any given day: sink into your beach chair and grab your favorite book, dig into the sand with the kids and try your hand at a spectacular sandcastle, stroll the shores and take in the coastal splendor, catch a gorgeous Crystal Coast sunrise or sunset, swim in the blue-green waters, float atop the waves as you stare up into the clouds... we could go on and on.

We also have a few other ideas for some beachside fun in Emerald Isle and throughout the island of Bogue Banks. Check out these fun activities!

Emerald Isle Parks and Recreation 2 v 2 Beach Volleyball Tournament

Saturdays this summer beginning at 9a.m. and continuing until the last game is over, co-ed beach volleyball Emerald Isle Beach Volleyballtournaments in Emerald Isle are scheduled for June 22, July 27, August 31 and September 28 at the Western Ocean Regional Access on Islander Drive in Emerald Isle.

Registration costs $25 (cash only) per team with a deadline on the Thursday before the tournament at 5p.m. Registration is not available on the day of the tournament, so you have to plan ahead a bit here to partake in the beach volleyball action. Prize money goes to the first and second place teams, 70% and 30% respectively.

Players must be at least age 16 and teams should bring their own ball. When not playing, teams act as officials and are expected to officiate even after elimination from the tournament. There are no rain dates and refunds are issued for bad weather. Click here for registration details and further information.
