Give Dad the Best Father's Day Ever at the Beach
What better Father's Day present is there than a day or week (or more!) at the beach? Bring dad to the Crystal Coast of North Carolina for some fun in the sand, sun and surf and let him soak up all of the coastal pleasures to be had.
Give him the most precious gift of quality time with those he loves the most in an absolutely stunning setting. You'll also be giving him memories that last a lifetime all wrapped up in one unforgettable Father's Day at the beach.
Out on the Beach
Step out of your Emerald Isle vacation rental and onto the sand. Behold the sparkling blue-green waters ahead of you, feel the warm coastal breeze on your skin and inhale the salty sea air. Aaaahhh, it's a great day already! Your day at the beach with dad awaits you and you can spend it however he likes it. Toss a football, paddle the waves, walk, run or bike the beach, or just do nothing at all.

Out on the Water
On-the-water adventures abound here on the Crystal Coast. Choose dad's favorite or let him try something new and exciting.

Out on the Town
Whether you stay locally or venture out on a day trip, you'll find plenty to see and do during your Father's Day on the Crystal Coast. Each of our quaint maritime towns offers its own unique experiences, so you really can't go wrong. Local favorite attractions include Fort Macon, the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, and the NC Maritime Museum in Beaufort. Of course there are waterfronts to explore in Morehead City and Beaufort, excellent shopping, fine dining, and unending coastal sights to see.
Take dad golfing, fishing, sightseeing, exploring, or whatever his heart desires. It's his day!
If you're looking for a free summer music concert in a historic maritime town on Father's Day, head over to the town of Swansboro, which is just a short drive from Emerald Isle. The Pavilion at Olde Town Square plays host to SwanFest each summer. Bring a lawn chair, sit back and relax with dad enjoying music by the sea. The music begins at 6:30p.m. and continues into the sunset hours.
No matter where you go or what you do, we wish you the best Father's Day ever with dad. Happy Father's Day to the all of the amazing dads out there. The world is a better place because of you. Cheers!
