A Local's Guide to Carolina Beach

Staying in a beach condo is a great way to have a family-friendly vacation, and North Carolina has a lot to offer travelers. A North Carolina beach vacation gives the whole family a chance to relax, soak up some sun and enjoy themselves.

Along the coast of North Carolina, the Beach State Park is a great place to go fishing and spot carnivorous plants on the Flytrap Trail. Elsewhere, the Carolina Beach boardwalk is one of the main attractions and offers places to eat, play and shop as well as amusement rides.

One of the top spots for a day in the sun is Kure Beach. This popular town in New Hanover County is about 15 miles south of Wilmington and only has about 2,000 people living there. In the summer, this quiet resort in Wilmington Metropoliotan area gets much busier with tourists looking for a space to relax. Beachgoers can take a swim or just soak up the rays but the area is also a great spot for fishing.

The Cape Fear River meets the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean at Kure Beach which brings a wide selection of fish and aquatic animals to the waters.

Water Sports

Surf fishing, bottom fishing, shell fishing and deep sea fishing are all on offer at the beach as well as grabbing a seat on the pier. The iconic 712ft Kure Beach Fishing Pier welcomes visitors for a day of catching fish as well has hosting arcades.

Further along the coast is the Fort Fisher State Recreation Area which has a beautiful six mile long beach completely unspoilt and undeveloped. This beautiful spot is home to nesting loggerhead sea turtles while offering a public beach access for visitors. There’s additionally a protected swimming area, picnic area with grills for beachfront barbecues and a visitor center giving tourists local information. It is the perfect place to enjoy a lazy afternoon or weekend.

See & Do

Four-wheelers can be driven onto the sand at certain times of the year and surf schools run taster lessons for more active vacationers. Plus, a display of military vehicles is available at the North Carolina Military History Museum.
