From the northernmost tip of Carolina Beach to the southern extension of Fort Fisher, island life is distinguished by abundant leisure activities, stunning ocean views and a relaxed tropical atmosphere. Pleasure Island’s beaches were rated the cleanest on the North Carolina coast in 2003 and boast more lifeguards than any other East Coast beach.

From fishing to strolling to lounging on the beach, the island communities of Pleasure Island provide ample opportunities for fun in the sun.
The rich heritage of the Cape Fear Coast dates back to early explorers who named Cape Fear for its rugged shoals and foreboding waters. The area was significantly involved in the Revolutionary, Civil and Second World Wars. Its historical legacy can be explored at local Civil War battlefields and numerous area museums. The Cape Fear Coast today is a busy port and a filmmaking Mecca.
