HIGHLIGHTS OF A 4 DAY BEACH VACATION TO THE BRUNSWICK ISLANDS NC
The NC Brunswick Islands region is Brunswick County in the southernmost corner of North Carolina, just south of Pleasure Island (aka Carolina Beach and Kure Beach). It’s the last of the state’s coastal treasures you experience before heading south of the border to North Myrtle Beach, SC.
Ocean Isle Beach Attractions
Ocean Isle is considered to be the most family-friendly beach vacation area in the Brunswick Isles with its access to miles of coastline, acres of marshlands, mini-golf and arcade games, museums, zip line adventures and options for eating and drinking with waterside views.
Oak Island Beach + Attractions
Oak Island has the reputation for being the Laid-Back Island of Yesteryear, with more of a neighborhood feel than a vacation destination.
Things to do in Southport
One of our favorite finds on our NC Brunswick Islands vacation was not the beach, but the charming, small town of Southport located at the mouth of the Cape Fear River.
The southern-most beach, Sunset Beach, was probably my favorite of the Brunswick Islands beaches. This is the magic you are looking for in a beach destination: miles of pristine white sand bordered by sand dunes instead of high rises.
From Trawlers to Table at Calabash
Calabash is a tiny fishing village just near the South Carolina border. It’s home to world famous fresh seafood, lightly battered and fried in the Calabash style of cooking.
