Carolina Beach and Kure Beach are located on Pleasure Island in southeastern New Hanover County. Each beach has a uniqueness of its own.
There’s never a dull moment in Carolina Beach! There’s something for every member of the family to enjoy. When you cross Snow’s Cut Bridge you’re in for a fun-filled vacation!
Bryant Real Estate has over 100 Carolina and Kure Beach rentals along the 7-mile stretch of sandy beach, including some that are just a short stroll to the strand. From efficiencies to luxurious homes and condos, Bryant Real Estate can find the perfect Carolina Beach house or condo rental for your family.
Carolina Beach is all about fun! Follow the nature trails in Carolina Beach State Park and if you’re lucky you’ll come across the Venus Fly Trap, indigenous to this area only. Stop by the Visitor’s Center for info and Cape Fear Indian history. If fishing is your passion, the North End Pier is the spot to be, or if you want that “big one”, spend the day on one of the many charters available. How about a pleasure/party cruise on the Intracoastal Waterway or the Cape Fear River?
The center of activity on Carolina Beach is the infamous Boardwalk. Quirky shops, restaurants, amusement park, and arcades will delight kids and adults alike. Every Thursday during the season, enjoy fireworks and shag along to beach music! Downtown Carolina Beach has a wide assortment of restaurants, boutiques, and activities featuring go-cart rides, and miniature golf to name a few. Be sure to view our information on Carolina Beach activities and attractions.
The Lake, just south of the town center is home to the Carolina Beach Farmer’s Market (Saturday mornings), and free family movies on Sundays during the season. Rent a paddle boat and explore the largest natural lake in the US close to the ocean.
Festivals and events are plentiful! Chances are when you’re visiting Carolina Beach and Kure Beach something special will be going on! Chowder Cook-off, East Coast Got Em On Classic King Mackerel Tournament, Seafood, Blues & Jazz Festival, the Carolina Beach Music Festival On The Beach, and free summer concerts at Ft. Fisher Recreation area, are just a sampling of activities to make your stay on Pleasure Island as busy as you want it to be!
