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.

  • Calm clear-blue waters with a family-oriented park vibe. Not too crowded, clean, and numerous gazebos. This place does have lockers, however they were not in service when I was there. That was a big disappointment because I ubered there and would have preferred to swim knowing my belongings are safe. The fast foot hut has nothing to write home about, but I didn't go there for the food.
  • Beautiful beach! I had lots of fun there!!
  • At the right end of the Spa there is a small water park for children, beside the area of paramedics. From there you can see impressive take-off aircraft from the Luis Munoz Marin international airport and across the blue of the sea. The entrance ticket is $4.00 per person for an hour. Adults must accompany children. Although some of the structures are abandoned, children have fun a lot. At the beginning the strict that the lifeboat bothers them but they comply with their work. My experience of the place was good. The environment is clean, controlled, staff is friendly and considerate with visitors. I recommend you have a timer, because it pays per hour. Lifeguards may fail for a few minutes elapsed time, but is honored them not enjoyed due to the weather the same day time.
