The shoreline is where most of Carolina Beach’s action happens. This is where you’ll find the boardwalk, marina and fishing center, along with a Ferris wheel, arcades, surf shops, restaurants and a host of activities on and off the water for all ages. Several of the city’s popular restaurants sit along the shoreline, including Olde Salty, the Surfside Bar and Restaurant and the Silver Dollar.
Many community events take place in this area, including the annual Seafood Blues and Jazz Festival and the Island of Lights Christmas parade. At Freeman Park, located in an undeveloped area on the northern part of the island, you can walk along the beach as far as the inlet at Masonboro Island.
