Unplug And Find A World Of Things To Do

Explore the outdoor treasures of Kure Beach and reconnect with what really matters. Walk the trail encircling a Civil War fort. Drop by the aquarium's Adventure Reef, an outdoor play area for kids ages 2 to 12, or visit with all kinds of marine critters - including alligators, venomous snakes, sharks, stingrays, moray eels, seahorses, sea turtles, and more. Sail, surf, scuba dive and snorkel in this outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Tee off on one of the 60 beautiful courses that earned the region the #8 spot on "Golf Digest's Best Little Golf Town in America" list. Hop a ferry for a scenic trip to the mainland or grab your lucky fishing pole and head to the 712-foot Kure Beach Fishing Pier. See the shore from a breathtaking perspective and kayak the coastline. Dine on delicious seafood at one of our family-owned restaurants. From sand castles to surfing to shopping, Kure Beach has plenty of things to do on land and sea.

Below is a sampling of the many things to do on the island.  Use the search box and you'll find a complete list of activities in Kure Beach.

For more things to do just minutes away, check out nearby Carolina Beach, located just north of Kure Beach on the northern tip of Pleasure Island. The fun begins on the bustling historic boardwalk lined with pizza, donut and ice cream stands, and filled with miniature golf, batting cages, an arcade and more. Toss a fishing line from the pier, the shore or from one of several chartered and group boating excursions. Plan your day around our local events calendar, filled with beach music, seafood festivals and fireworks shows.
