Best Waterfront Communities of the Crystal Coast

The Crystal Coast is all about life on the water, and that means something a little different to everyone. It might be an oceanfront condo paradise tucked onto the white-sand shores of Atlantic Beach. It might be a sprawling estate home with a dock on the Bogue Sound. It might be a cozy cabin on a deepwater canal with a convenient boat lift. It might just be a nice little home on a pond. However you define your ideal waterfront living, the Crystal Coast has more than a few options to offer!
