The South Brunswick Islands of Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach have drawn summer vacationers for decades. Admired for the lack of high-rise condominiums, the beach cottages provide the perfect family atmosphere for summer visitors and easy living for residents. Situated between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington, this area offers wonderful shopping districts and dining choices.
Each of the islands and surrounding mainland towns has a unique character and activities sure to delight each member of your family. Proclaimed the “Seafood Capital of the World”, Calabash is a quiet waterfront town that comes alive during the summer months as its many restaurants live up to the moniker. Bird Island, at the southern end of Sunset Beach, is a popular destination for shelling or reading the anonymous entries in the logbook at the “Kindred Spirit” mailbox located among the dunes.
The South Brunswick Islands offer many activities to enjoy, including fishing charters, kayaking, sailing, parasailing, public tennis courts, bird watching, and, of course, golf. There are over 30 championship courses in Brunswick County, and another 80 within an hours drive.
