Things To Do

From a walk on the beach to a stroll on the Boardwalk, you can't beat Carolina Beach. Enjoy a famous Britt's Donut or a sweet treat from Krazy Kones on a swing bench overlooking the ocean. Summer brings the carnival games and rides and a weekly firework display you can view from the front balcony of the condo. Truly a wonderful and family friendly place to visit.

Do not miss this! Kids and adults alike love seeing all the creatures from Luna the albino alligator to Sheldon the sea turtle. And now there are OTTERS!!! From touch tanks to shoal tanks, there is something for everyone. My kids always loved the outdoor playground there as well as all the indoor activities.

World famous Seafood Chowder. (Seriously, it has won major awards). The rest of the menu is just as good too. (Nothing is fried so if that's what you're craving, try Bowman's down the street). They have inside, outside, bar and patio seating. They even have a shuttle van available for groups. Call them in advance to schedule!

This place is a legend. Cool enough to walk into the cooler in the back and check out their selection of beers, pick what you want and go pay the bartender. Hot enough to be the filming location for the Hot Summer remake video starring the OuterBanks stars. Seriously, if you are 21 and up, GO!!!

交通アクセス

Parking Info

All your Carolina Beach parking info...please be sure to read all signage when parking. Not all lots are Town owned. https://www.carolinabeach.org/visitors/parking
交通アクセス

Alternatives to Driving

Carolina Beach is very pedestrian/bike friendly. There are many bike paths and Greenways. I highly recommend Pleasure Island Rentals for bikes (and kayaks and SUP'S). Getting a golf cart from SunFun Rentals is another fun way to get around.
必見

Summer Weekly Events

Carolina Beach does it up all summer long. ***Weather permitting*** Tuesday: Family nights @ the Boardwalk Wednesday: Bingo on the Boardwalk Thursday: Fireworks and Music at the Gazebo Stage on the Boardwalk. Saturday: Farmer's/Artisan Market at the Lake. Sunday: Movie Night @the Lake.
必見

Fishing

Coastal Living...take advantage of the opportunity to go fishing! Take a stroll down by the Marina and check out all the Charter Boats. Plenty of good Captain's available for inshore half days or full day Gulf Stream trips. Or you can go to one of the Fishing Piers and throw out a line. Surf fishing too but that requires a permit.
子連れ旅行

Parks and Playgrounds

Mike Chappell Park has a playground, ball fields, an off-leash dog park and a Skate park. There is also an ocean front playground in Kure Beach that has a Pirate ship for climbing.
子連れ旅行

Arcades and Rides

There are a few arcades on the island that are always a hit with the kids! And we are proud to announce our new PERMANENT ferriss wheel as well as a few other rides that are staying year-round at the Boardwalk. If you are looking for more, check out Jungle Rapids on Oleander Dr in Wilmington. They have a full on water park, putt putt, go carts, etc.
子連れ旅行

Sharktooth Island

Give Captain Charlie a call for a boat ride up the Cape Fear River to Sharkstooth Island. Hear the legend of the Devil's Hand and try to find yourself a tooth to take home.
