There are only about 6,000 year-round residents in Carolina Beach. The area has warm, mild temperatures most of the year making it ideal for sunbathing, boating, swimming, and more from April through November.
When you buy a Carolina Beach home, you'll get to live in a place that blends the fun features of generations past with upgraded living. Revitalized in recent years, the Carolina Beach Boardwalk is a favorite of both residents and visitors. In fact, the Boardwalk is one of the last remaining on the East Coast. You can walk the Boardwalk and enjoy the ocean, stop for a bite to eat at one of the small food vendors or enjoy a snow cone on a hot day. An amusement park gives kids and adults alike the chance to burn off some extra energy and make some memories.
Buyers who want to enjoy a more natural side of Carolina Beach need only step outside their Carolina Beach home. Besides surfing, swimming, and other water fun, Carolina Beach State Park offers 761 acres of white sand beaches, dunes, and nature trails to explore. The vegetation in this area helps shield campers from the breezy ocean air. One of the only state parks where you can enjoy camping, walking the 6 mile trail alongside indigenous Venus fly traps and easily access your boat at the fully-equipped marina with gas station and two ramps. The miles and miles of sand dunes invite you to take in the natural beauty of Carolina Beach and enjoy the solitude.
The town has a long list of community events each year that brings the town together. Come out for the Chowder Cook-Off, Christmas by the Sea, Family Night Blast Off at the Boardwalk, Music, Surfing and Seafood Festivals just to name a few. You can also enjoy a weekly firework show, farmer’s market, family movie and concert series that starts in May.
Choosing to buy a home in Carolina Beach doesn't mean giving up the comforts of living in a larger city. While there are many sites and attractions, Carolina Beach also offers all the practicalities needed to live there year-round. Grocery stores, hardware stores, drugstores, and more make it possible for you to get everything you need without leaving the island.
