Carolina Beach, NC – Carolina Beach is the quintessential beach town. There are miles of sandy beaches and good waves for surfing. There are tackle shops and a fishing pier, and a marina full of charter boats. There are vintage motels and cottages, and a boardwalk that boasts some of the oldest bumper cars in the country. It's an inexpensive, low-profile beach community that appeals to families and fishermen, tourists and retirees.
