Located on Pleasure Island, just north of Kure Beach, Carolina Beach waterfront homes look out on both the Atlantic Ocean and the Cape Fear River as it makes its way to the sea. Find everything from condos or beach cottages to stately single-family homes. Both part-time and full-time residents find plenty to draw them to the quaint beach town. The natural world is teeming with interesting creatures and plants. Go to the beach to play in the waves or soak up the sun. Or head to Carolina State Beach, a short drive from most Carolina Beach homes. With Cape Fear River on one side, the Atlantic Ocean on the opposite, and Mason Sound estuary at the bottom, visitors will get an amazing crash course in the ecology of the major water habitats. Go hiking or camping, bring your fishing gear, or rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard.
Not only is the location of Carolina Beach waterfront homes attractive, the town itself has lots going on to interest everyone. The Carolina Beach boardwalk was originally built in 1887, making it a fixture in the town. It’s undergoing improvements to expand and modernize the structure. Grab some fresh pizza, play the carnival games, or go shopping. During the summer, make sure to catch the concerts and fireworks that run weekly from late May through Labor Day.
