Mayor's Welcome

Welcome to Emerald Isle.  I am proud to be Mayor of the best family beach in North Carolina.  The Council and I would enjoy hearing your comments and suggestions about our Town.  Please email or phone me, or any of the Commissioners as listed on our Contact Page.  Each and every thought is important, and I want to assure you that we welcome your comments and your input.  If you want to see any of us in person, please call the Town Hall (252) 354-3424 to schedule an appointment.

For those who have not been fortunate enough to visit Emerald Isle in person let me take this opportunity to share with you some important information about our Town.  We are located on the southern Outer Banks of North Carolina between Morehead City and Jacksonville.  We are a vibrant beach community with a population of approximately 3,700+ year round, and a summer population exceeding 35,000.  We have a beautiful beach with crystal clear water, sandy beaches and beautiful sunrises and sunsets each day.  We have outstanding restaurants, unique shops and businesses that reach out to our tourists and residents.  Our local real estate firms offer a wide range of accommodations.  I invite you to visit us for a great family vacation.  If you have visited before, please come back soon. 

To our visitors I hope to see you when you are in Town and to our permanent residents, I hope to see you often and feel free to contact me.
