Holden Beach, North Carolina

With over 11 miles of clean, sandy beaches and a year-round moderate temperature, the island attracts many visitors who want to experience a unique quiet family-oriented atmosphere. Holden Beach is the perfect spot for biking, jogging, shelling, beachcombing, sailing or simply enjoying the latest best seller.

Holden Beach, a south facing island where the sun rises on your left and sets on your right, is located on the southern coast of North Carolina. The island's unique position means that there is sun on the beach no matter what time of day, statistically speaking.

Holden Beach, the longest and largest of the three South Brunswick Islands, has a reputation as a quiet, family-oriented vacation destination with very little in the way of commercial development. National Geographic Traveler magazine rated Holden Beach one of the best family beaches in the country. The island has a 35-foot height limit for buildings, and most of the commercial property is on the mainland side of the Intra-Coastal Waterway.

Boating and Fishing

Holden Beach is a boater's paradise! Launch your craft from the Intracoastal Waterway and swing through the inlet heading due east for the Gulf Stream waters. If you don't have a boat there are several charters ready when you are! We recommend Ollie Raja Charters and Catch 22 Charters. Click their links to learn more about boat charters at Holden Beach!

Historic Area

It's only a 45 minute drive northeast to historic downtown Wilmington, complete with Carriage Rides and River walk shopping. A 35 minute drive southwest will take you into the entertainment world of Myrtle Beach. A quick 30 minute drive will take you to the Historic Town of Southport for quality shopping, dining and strolling through the tree lined streets. The major blockbuster, "A Safe Haven", was filmed here and other movies throughout the years. There is also an impressive 4th of July Festival and firework display every Independence Day.

Turtle Sanctuary

The island is a sea turtle habitat and during the hatching season (May to October) those who don't mind staying up late into the night can witness one of nature's most interesting pleasures watching hundreds of small sea turtles "boil" out of the sand and march into the ocean waves.
