At North Carolina's Small Wonder

Let the peaceful small town atmosphere of Kure Beach transform you.  Home to the oldest fishing pier on the Atlantic coast, an ocean-front park, a nearby state aquarium and beautiful natural surroundings, Kure Beach provides the perfect setting and relaxed pace for you and your family to get away and reconnect in this pure and natural playground.

Break out of your spring routine with a getaway to Kure Beach. Reconnect with nature as you explore one of the beach’s scenic parks, test your angler skills as you cast a line off of Kure Beach Fishing Pier, sit on an oceanfront swing and enjoy scenic views at Ocean Front Park, see exotic butterflies and birds at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher and more this season.

Check out our Spring Highlights for top picks on things to see and do and book your getaway now to enjoy Kure Beach’s simple pleasures.

Come face to face with live alligator feedings and hands-on exploration of bonnet sharks to live diving exhibits and up-close-and-personal encounters with sea turtles at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, named one of the best aquariums in the U.S. by the Travel Channel. Peek into the past under the towering, wind-swept live oak trees that surround the Fort Fisher State Historic Site and Museum. Explore the grounds of the largest land-sea battle of the Civil War and commemorate the upcoming 150th Anniversary of the Civil War in North Carolina with the reenactment of the fall of Fort Fisher.

Turn off the gadgets and enjoy the views from the seaside benches and playground at the new Ocean Front Park. Reel in the catch of the day along the 712-foot Kure Beach Fishing Pier, one of the oldest on the Atlantic Coast. Hop on the ferry and take in the natural beauty of the area or test your skills on the area’s only disc golf course.

Or do nothing at all as Kure Beach provides a relaxed haven for you and your family. Stay in a mom-and-pop motel, condo or quaint cottage rental, and dine at one of our locally owned restaurants serving the fresh catch of the day - all of your lodging and dining options are just a short walk, drive or bike ride from any part of town.

Experience North Carolina’s family-friendly seaside retreat.  Take a break from your deadlines and schedule and see why life’s a little less hectic here at Kure Beach.
