Swansboro NC, affectionately called “The Friendly City by the Sea”, is a town in Onslow County just outside of Jacksonville, in North Carolina's Inner Banks area. It is a small town with a population just under 1,500, and is a great place to live or own a home along the
NC Crystal Coast. Discover the coastal paradise that is Swansboro; our homes are centrally located between Topsail Island and
Atlantic Beach, along the beautiful White Oak River.
Historically, Swansboro was an important coastal region and is known for being the first town to become incorporated in 1783. Named after Samuel Swann, who was once a Speaker in the North Carolina House of Commons, Swansboro has enjoyed a relatively eventful history with many noted residents and points of interest. In fact, the first steamboat constructed in North Carolina, the Prometheus, was built in Swansboro, and the town is also the home of the oldest seafood festival in North Carolina, The Mullet Festival. For over half a century this celebration of seafood, family games, and all things coastal has drawn many visitors to the region during the month of October.
The Mullet Festival is not the only thing Swansboro NC is known for; this region is full of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and there are numerous state parks, beaches, rivers and even a few Emerald Isle golf courses, so you will never run out of things to keep you busy. One of the most beautiful regions of Swansboro and one of the best kept secrets along the
Crystal Coast is the pristine, Hammocks Beach State Park which is located on
Bear Island. Visitors to the park can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, picnicking, fishing, hiking and watch the abundant wildlife in their native habitats. This is a great place to see gigantic loggerhead turtles and watch dolphins jump through the waves in the distance. Also, the White Oak River provides a wealth of outdoor beauty and plenty of great places to fish, swim, canoe, and kayak.
Golfers love the Crystal Coast for their many great golf courses, and Swansboro is really no different. Silver Creek Golf Club, located in Swansboro, is famous for its beautiful emerald greens and well manicured course. Designed by Gene Hamm, Silver Creek Golf Club has not only a championship, 18-hole course but also practice greens and a nice driving range area.
