Renting a Beachfront Home in Carolina Beach, North Carolina

Carolina Beach is a classic beach town, found on Pleasure Island, near the riverfront city of Wilmington, North Carolina. The town has many beachfront rental homes with ocean views and pool access. The best form of entertainment in the area would be the beach with boating, swimming and fishing, but there are also local shops, dining options and a seasonal boardwalk. Carolina Beach offers the feel of an old-fashioned beach town, centered around beachfront activities.

Attractions

Carolina Beach State Park

The state park in Carolina Beach offers many opportunities for outdoor fun. It has a marina that offers a great spot to begin a fishing trip out in the Atlantic. The marina store sells snacks, bait and fuel to be sure you have everything you need for your excursion. The park has a visitor's center that has a wealth of information on the park and surrounding area. There are several hiking trails in the park along with many nice spots for a family picnic.

Beach Fun

You can't visit Carolina Beach without spending some time in the sand. Early risers have a chance to pick up some unique sea shells as the tide heads out. There are also nice places for swimming, surfing and body boarding. If you enjoy relaxing in the sun, set up your umbrella and spend the day laying in the sand. The beach is quiet and clean and offers a nice place for families to spend the day. A night walk on the beach can offer a different view point on the local scenery and may even allow you to see some local aquatic wildlife. You can likely find many accommodations that give a great beach view.

North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher

The aquarium at Fort Fisher offers a chance for the family to see local wildlife and exotic aquatic creatures. There are various seasonal exhibits throughout the year as well. You can see divers feed animals as well as experience special events. Visitors to the aquarium have the opportunity to touch horseshoe crabs, stingrays, sea stars and even sharks. The aquarium has exhibits for venomous snakes, sea turtles, an albino alligator named Luna and even local marine mammals.

Fishing

Boating and fishing are very popular activities in around Carolina Beach. Public boat access is available in several places on Pleasure Island if you have a boat of your own. There are also charter companies who will take you out fishing on the Atlantic or in the nearby Cape Fear river. Local fish include things like grouper, snapper and flounder. If you aren't into fishing, there are also charter tours to take you out to see dolphins and other wildlife.

Weather

The Carolina Beach area has mild weather year-round. The water begins to warm up in April and May for swimming and water activities. Winters are mild and with this being the slowest season for visitors, it can offer an opportunity for those who want to feel like they have the beach to themselves. Keep in mind that many places are only open during the high season and close after labor day. During the spring and summer the island has events and festivals, with most of the seasonal businesses and the boardwalk opening during this time. Fall is mild and can offer a less busy time to visit with the beach being less populated and the water still warm enough for swimming.

Getting Here

Many people fly into the Wilmington international airport and rent a car to get to Pleasure Island. Visitors also may drive to the area in a private car or rental car. There are also coastal tour options that allow visitors to spend time in Carolina Beach and the surrounding areas.

Perfect for couples retreat

5 of 5
My husband and I needed a vacation and this home was perfect. So much better than a hotel. You have a private deck that is marvelous. The walk to the beach is only a block. Suite is set up perfectly. We can’t wait to return. The owners are also very helpful and attentive. Thanks for allowing us to staying in your home
