Refers to the barrier islands along
North Carolina's southern
coast. Including, but not limited to, Atlantic Beach, Salter Path, Indian Beach, and Emerald Isle. In some cases the mainland towns are considered part
of the SOBX, including Morehead City, Beaufort, and Cedar Point.
In rare cases, extreme southern
NC beaches will
be listed as part
of the SOBX, including Topsail Beach, and areas around Surf City.

Him: Sure, but what's that?
Me: the Southern Outer Banks. Let's go to Emerald Isle.
