A bridge is the only way to reach Harkers Island

Near the heart of Carteret County, Harkers Island is a census-designated place that is about 19 feet above sea level in one area. It's surrounded by the Core Sound, the North River, and The Straits, with the Back Sound's waters crashing against the island's south shoreline. There are two bays nearby, too: Eastmouth and Westmouth. The island is connected to the mainland via the Earl C. Davis Memorial Bridge, a handsome steel structure that is as commanding as the charming island itself.
