Carolina Beach Neighborhoods

Cross over the bridge on U.S. 421 at Snow's Cut, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project that connects the ICW with the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, and you come directly into Carolina Beach.

The beach communities of Carolina Beach on the north and Kure Beach to the south are located on the land area known as Pleasure Island. Home to about 10,000 year-round residents, these friendly, family-oriented communities are often mistaken by visitors as one long island beach town referred to as Carolina Beach. This is an understandable error due to the similarities of the towns. Both have clean, wide beaches, an abundance of fishing opportunities, several nice restaurants and a growing sense of community pride that makes living here a charming prospect.

Although Carolina Beach has been a community since 1857, the whole of Pleasure Island has been experiencing substantial residential growth during recent years as an affordable place to locate by or near the ocean. The assortment of ownership opportunities range from condominiums to cottages to upscale homes. There are several high-rises, many multi-story condominium buildings on the northern end, an abundance of small residences and — particularly toward the central and southern parts of the island —- quite a few larger homes.

Currently, the island is experiencing considerable commercial growth, and revitalization is underway. A recently added shopping center has a Food Lion as its anchor store. Two major chain hotels have been opened in the area, increasing the number of visitors to downtown Carolina Beach and the Boardwalk.

Single-family homes along Carolina Beach and Kure Beach range between $250,000 to $500,000 and up, with townhomes and condominiums priced in the upper-$90,000s to the $500,000s. Not surprisingly, oceanfront properties in both markets fall into the upper range of price quotes, $500,000 to $1 million and more. The farther south you go on this island, the more fascinating the scenery becomes. In Fort Fisher, beautiful live oak trees have been sculpted over the centuries by the sea breezes. At the southernmost tip of this strip of land, the Cape Fear River converges with the Atlantic Ocean near Bald Head Island.

Among Pleasure Island's notable residential developments is Harbour Point, a traditional waterfront neighborhood and yacht club located on the Intracoastal Waterway at the juncture of Snow's Cut in Carolina Beach. Its 90 townhomes feature tin roofs, white picket fences, pastel exteriors, romantic porches and classic styling. Reminiscent of Charleston, the community has a relaxed ambiance and quiet sophistication. This neighborhood is a truly unique blend of Southern architecture that combines functionality and spaciousness with just plain charm. A 98-slip marina that can accommodate boats up to 100 feet, a waterfront pool and a clubhouse make this picture complete.
