Brunswick County Beaches
Along the southeastern coast of North Carolina lies the more than
45 miles of sandy white powder beaches
of Brunswick County. Brunswick County is comprised of a series of islands
that dot the coast between Wilmington,
NC, and Myrtle Beach, SC. As primarily
south-facing beaches, you’ll enjoy both
vibrant sunrises and sunsets from the
Bald Head Island, Oak Island, Sunset Beach, Holden Beach and Ocean Isle
Beaches each have their own unique
qualities and attractions.
Bald Head Island is known for it’s
famed lighthouse, “Old Baldy.” But you’ll
have to take a ferry there, because there
are no cars allowed on the island.
The area beaches are well-known
for their seafood. An entire style of fish
preparation is named for the Brunswick
County town of Calabash, located at the
South Carolina border.
Brunswick County is also home to
Southport, a delightful fishing town
with oak-lined streets and marinas.
Stroll through the town and its charming boutiques and antique shops. Southport is home to the state’s largest Fourth
of July festival, and just outside of the
city proper (and most beach communities), are planned communities perfect
With the warm Gulf Stream waters only 30 to 45 nautical miles off the
coast, sports fisherman from around the
country come to test their prowess in
the deep blue. Depending on the time
of year, you might catch blue crabs, king
mackerel, wahoo, tuna or shark. And,
