Find a Sea Scape vacation home on Kure Beach
Home to both Carolina and Kure Beach… and all the way down to Fort Fisher. Carolina Beach is the first beach you find when crossing south over Snow’s Cut bridge. It’s a straight shot through the active ‘town’ of Carolina Beach and its sweet little lake to get to Kure Beach.
Let’s start with how to pronounce this beach. It’s not cure, but instead it’s curry. Not an Indian restaurant to be found in this smaller and primarily residential beach town though.
People love Kure Beach because there are fewer crowds, but also because the colorful houses are a joy to behold. Families that want to enjoy each other’s company more than the company of those they’ve never met come to Kure every year for some peace and family time.
Kure Beach has its own town center, with some excellent restaurants and a wonderful fishing pier. One must-try for chowder lovers is Jack Mackerel’s Island Grill. It’s filling and flavorful, and just the right amount of heat can be detected.
Kure feels a bit closer to nature, with its vistas of the ocean and the river. It’s also right next to Fort Fisher , which features a beautiful park, a fabulous dog-friendly beach, a state aquarium and historic walking paths. But that’s a blog post by itself.
Nostalgia and Nachos
There’s so much to do on Pleasure Island that it has earned its reputation as a fabulous family vacation, with something to make everyone happy.
