With the start of the new year, resolutions and goals for the year ahead may be on your mind. What better way to celebrate wellness in the New Year than with a Holden Beach getaway?

Winter in Holden Beach

Though your dreams about your next beach getaway may include hot, sunny days, we assure you that winter is also a fabulous time to visit our peaceful slice of paradise. The islands and beaches of North Carolina are quieter this time of year, which offers the opportunity for plenty of reflection and relaxation.

Beachcombing is always more fun - with less competition for the best treasures, and an escape to Holden Beach is the perfect opportunity to reset after the busy holiday season and to practice a bit of self-care as you head into the new year.


Yoga on the Beach

During your winter retreat to the beach, a great way to relax and unwind is to enjoy a local yoga class. The Town of Holden Beach offers classes three days a week with instructor Alice Ledford. Other yoga studios in the area include Holden Beach Yoga and The Island Sage Healing Arts Center.

Watching your favorite instructor on your phone or tablet to enjoy some private yoga from the deck of your vacation rental is always an option, too!

Fun Fitness at Holden Beach

In addition to those treasured walks on the beach, there are several other sports and recreation opportunities throughout Brunswick CountyRenting a bicycle or kayak from Hobbspitality partners Beach Fun Rentals or Boomers Rentals can also be a great way to see the sights of Holden Beach while getting some exercise.

And a leisurely walk through nature along the Shallotte River is a popular new option at the Shallotte Riverwalk.

Holden Beach Winter Activities

Though some local businesses may close seasonally, there are still plenty of things to see and do in Holden Beach this winter season. We suggest enjoying fun family activities around the island and surrounding area mixed with quiet afternoons in your Hobbs Realty vacation rental of family dinners and game nights.

Enjoy Some Rest and Relaxation

In between your family fun, make sure you reserve some quiet time during your winter island getaway. We think you will love some of our favorite Holden Beach spaces and places to rest. And of course, reading, porch rockers, or simply just breathing in the salty air are all great ways to greet the New Year.

And is there anything more inspiring than our beautiful winter sunrises and sunsets? What a wonderful way to prepare and look ahead to all of the possibilities of the new year?

We Hope to See You Soon!

We love winter on Holden Beach just as much as we do the rest of the year, and we know you will, too. Pack a hat and a jacket, and come on down!
