Things to do in Carolina Beach


Carolina Beach offers an array of fun entertainment and things to do while you’re renting a Palm Air Realty property. While some events are seasonal, Carolina Beach offers plenty of year-round activities to enjoy.




Year Round:

Fishing – year round there is always fishing to be done. Whether it’s for small sharks and winter flounder during the cold months, or red drum, speckled trout in the warmer months – the fishing is always hot in this area. Summer and fall offer plenty of chartering offshore options as well for Tuna, Mahi, and more! Surf, and pier fishing are great in the area and always very popular. Carolina Beach offers the Carolina Beach pier, it doesn’t require a fishing license to fish off of and is full service with a tackle shop and a restaurant attached.

Restaurants/Drinks – Carolina Beach offers plenty of establishments that are open year-round. Find out more by checking out the restaurants informational page.

Carolina Beach State Park – the park is open year round and offers great hiking, camping, fishing, and exploring. Find a Venus Flytrap in the wild, fish quieter and less populated areas, and enjoy serene campsites during your trip.

Shopping – Carolina Beach offers plenty of shopping in the area. Find local goods, crafts, and clothing that are unique to the area at different shops around town. Even find last minute forgotten items for the beach!


Carolina Beach Boardwalk – while it’s open year-round, it’s best enjoyed during the warmer months when the shops, rides, live music, and festivals are running. Voted one of the best boardwalks in the country, the Carolina Beach Boardwalk is your ideal vintage boardwalk. The summer offers weekly fireworks, lots of rides, souvenirs, and sweet treats to enjoy! You can even take a 40 minutes guided tour of the history of the boardwalk if you’d like to learn more about it, every Tuesday.

Carolina Beach Lake Park – while this park is open year round, the best events are found in the summer months. Enjoy paddle-boating around the lake on the weekends from April to Memorial Day and daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day, 9am-dusk. Saturday mornings in the summer there is a local farmers market and then Sunday evenings feature a free outdoor movie to enjoy with your significant other or family.

Need some equipment? Rent everything from beach chairs and umbrellas, to bikes, water accessories, (kayaks, paddle-boards, etc.) to baby supplies at Pleasure Island Rentals.
