Carolina Beach, Carolina

4.4
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.

  • To my taste the best urban beach in the world and with a wide and sufficient space to enjoy, the Carolina Sea has a soft swell that allows you to enjoy refreshing baths, Go with your well-endowed fridge as there are no places nearby

  • Lovely sand and gentle waves. No litter and a joy to visit. Had run along the beach this morning and was basically alone. Not much shade here though.  more »
