Carolina Beach

A woman takes a stroll along Carolina Beach. The beachside community is located in the southeastern portion of North Carolina, and offers mild temperatures and warm waters (from mid-April through November) due to its location 30 miles from the Gulf Stream. The climate makes Carolina Beach a great location for water sports such as pier fishing, deep-sea fishing and body surfing.
