1. Save the dates.

First things first. Sit down with your loved one and find dates for a beach getaway that work for the both of you. Neither of you want to feel stressed or distracted while away, so make sure it's a good time to plan your escape. You may also want to consider the time of year and how busy it will be. If you're looking for quieter beaches and less crowds, then book your trip during the shoulder or off-season. Then save those dates!

2. Book your romantic Emerald Isle rental.

Find an Emerald Isle vacation rental that is reflective of you as a couple. What amenities do you enjoy most? What will make this stay extra special? We might suggest one of our oceanfront Emerald Isle rentals where you can give the gift of the breathtaking Atlantic Ocean views every single day of your stay, and a convenient location where you're always just a few steps away from the beach.

3. Choose coastal adventures for couples.

Do a little local research and find some adventures and outings that you and your partner want to do while vacationing on the North Carolina coast. There are more coastal adventures than you'll have time for, so discuss it with your loved one and plan for a few of your favorites. Need some help?

4. Plan for time together just the two of you.

It's easy to overplan your time and all of the sudden you realize that you're going, going, going with zero downtime. Make sure you leave some gaps in your time away to allow for spontaneity, relaxation and time to just be together. You don't have to plan everything. Let the moments happen and give yourselves the opportunity to go with the flow. You are on island time, after all.
