Carolina Beach is situated on the north end of Pleasure Island NC, a coastal barrier island, which also consists of Kure Beach and historic Fort Fisher in New Hanover County, North Carolina. Carolina Beach has about 6,200 year-round residents and was incorporated as a town in 1925. It is three feet above sea level and its land area is 2.3 square miles. The beach is pristine with white soft sand and ocean waves are a constant flow of beauty and pleasurable soft sound. Watch the videos above.

There is something for everyone in this quaint Southern town. Water sports abound and kayak, paddleboard, surfboard, canoe and other ocean adventure rentals and lessons are readily available that can be found on our Recreational Rentals page. Ride a bike around the beach area or in town. Shopping in Carolina Beach is an enjoyable menagerie of stores and boutiques that include swimwear, fashion, tops, hats, artwork, antiques, crafts, books, gifts, souvenirs, and anything you want to use on the beach.

You can spend hours at our vintage oceanfront Carolina Beach Boardwalk perusing shops, playing arcade games, enjoying restaurants and bars, relaxing on swing benches, and enjoying the unobstructed views along the length of the boardwalk.

In the summer, both children and adults enjoy the popular Carolina Beach Boardwalk Amusement Park which has rides, games and food every evening as well as weekly family nights, fireworks, bingo, and live music.
