Carolina Beach sits between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean. Due to its location, the area welcomes families to go boating, fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and surfing. When not playing in the water, check out the year-round entertainment, shopping, and dining at the award-winning boardwalk and pier.

Our Figure 8 Island rentals are also in proximity to a yacht club, tennis courts, boat ramps, golf and restaurants.
