Experience the white sands and turquoise waters of Carolina Beach. The beachfront stretches far and wide, providing ample room to feel comfortable even when it's busy. Have a barbeque among the shaded picnic pavilions (with grills available to the public). The tranquil waters offer good conditions for kite flying or wind surfing, and parents can rest easy, as lifeguards constantly patrol the area. Several hotels stand nearby, providing numerous services and facilities for fun and entertainment. Be aware that the airport is nearby; you'll be exposed to the noise of planes taking off while lounging on this beach.
