Caswell Beach vacation rentals

Chill out on Caswell Beach

So, you're looking to breathe the fresh salt spray of the Eastern Seaboard and wonder at pretty Carolinian lighthouses, all without the frantic energy, twirling carousels, and throbbing boardwalks of Myrtle Beach? This could just be the perfect place. Swaying seagrasses flit this way and that in the breezes; kayaks bob on the brackish creeks; the echoes of golf hits rebound through the swamps; the sand glistens as the Atlantic swells break; dunes peak above the ocean spray, and oodles of Caswell Beach vacation rentals pepper the coast all along Oak Island.

Coastal enjoyments on Caswell Beach

If you've been lucky enough to bag one of the many Caswell Beach vacation rentals close to the coast, then you're in for a treat. Long days of sunbathing and swimming with the Atlantic are on the menu, while surf fishing, sea kayaking, creek walking, bird spotting, and oodles more all goes on in the surrounding nature parks and coves. Golf is another big draw too, while wildlife trails abound around the Brunswick Islands, offering the chance to spot rare sea turtles and formidable alligators floundering close to the shores.

Light the way in Caswell Beach

There's a chance you'll be able to see the soaring tops of the famous Oak Island Lighthouse from the porch of those Caswell Beach vacation rentals. Clocking up 45 meters in height, it looms over the beaches and buildings here to ward off ships from the shoals at the entrance to the Cape Fear River. After climbing the spiral staircases and getting your selfies there, be sure to head across the waters to the Old Baldy Lighthouse and Smith Island Museum of History. That's where you'll see even older heritage lighthouses, and unravel tales of American maritime history.

Lazy summers on Caswell Beach

Just like Myrtle Beach to the south west and most all of the other beautiful Brunswick Islands, Caswell Beach is certainly at its best in the summer. The months between June and August bring warm temperatures both in and out of the water. They offer long days of sunshine for lazing on the dunes, and often top conditions for hitting the nature trails or birding routes. Late September and fall can also be pretty, giving fall colors and some bargain Caswell Beach vacation rentals to boot.

Get sandy on Caswell Beach

Caswell Beach sits on the eastern cap of Oak Island, marking the farthest extension of the Myrtle Beach metro area in NC. The result is a place washed over by the ceaseless swells of the Atlantic Ocean, with long runs of wide sands interspersed occasionally by sections of craggy rock dipping into the sea. You'll also find oodles of wetlands and winding creeks in these parts, often inhabited by rare migratory waterfowl and snapping alligators alike.
