Cedar Island is located on the eastern tip of North Carolina on the Atlantic Ocean. North Carolina has more than 300 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. Cedar Island sits along that coastline and is approximately 4 miles long, beginning with the “Lola” Village in the southeast end close to the Lewis Creek and the Core Sound, and reaching the northern part of the island at Ferry Station, neighboring the Pamlico Sound. This unincorporated community is home to the State Ferry Transportation System Dock. Most of the locals are either fishermen or employed with the North Carolina Ferry System. Cedar Island, once known as ‘Roe', boasts a fishing harbor within its main village. The weather here is enjoyable with warmer winters and cooler summers compared to the inland areas. There is a motel by the ferry dock, a few vacation rentals, a horse stable, and a few other convenience outlets on this island. Cedar Island is a great get away spot by the beach with amazing views of the Pamlico Sound, sandy beaches with Juniper and Pines, and plenty of space to walk around or enjoy several water activities.
