Where Forest Meets the Sea

A natural playground
to explore.



Our new kayak and paddle board launch makes exploring the coastal marshes and rivers of the community easy for paddlers of all skill levels. Three water-level slips put this ever-changing nature preserve at your disposal and it’s just minutes from your door.

Also new this year is Bogue Watch’s nautical-themed playground. Set on amidst coastal pines, this playground was custom designed for Bogue Watch.

Nearly 160,000 acres of protected national forest lie opposite of Bogue Watch, nestling the community forever in between the sea and land.  As the only true coastal forest in the eastern United States, Croatan National Forest has pine, saltwater estuaries, bogs, and raised swamps called pocosins.  The perfect setting for Newport, NC and surrounding areas like New Bern, NC homes for sale at Bogue Watch.
