The beach is very private with wonderful soft sand. The ocean is clear, although the waves can be pretty rough, the water is wonderful. Great for low key family vacations.

Great beach for the family mom, dad and kids as well not like they'er over rated neighbors south of the border who have lost the meaning of family vacation. If you like some peace and quiet to go along with your vacation then this is the place for you

A quiet fishing area. Great for Families. It is limited though for things to do, but it is great if your idea is to relax, fish, and not be bothered with traffic. Plus you can literally leave to go home and not feel as though you need to get a few extra jobs to pay for it. LOL It is... More

We rented an oceanfront house for a week pretty far down the island. Very beautiful beach with longish dunes that vary in size with where you are on the island. We hade a 2 year old and 6 year old in our family group and they loved in. I can imagine that older teens would become pretty bored here after... More

It was hot and tropical with frequent rain, but we... More

Been coming here since Hazel in the '50s. Great family atmosphere, great beaches, usually good fishing. A safe place to let the kids explore and grow up.

This beach is perfect for a laid back summer vacation. Not many hotels which make the area very private. Their is lots of beach even during high tide and good local places to eat at or you can fix your own food. It would be hard but your vacation would go better if you didn't check in on a Saturday...

Great family beach. Quite, safe, and relasing and away from busy commercial activity. Beach is great and never crowded. Plenty of good restaurants, entertainment, and golfing nearby and at not-to-distant Myrtle Beach and Wilmington.

Holden Beach is a beautiful strip of land in southern portion of North Carolina. The beaches are wide and clean and close by but have no lifeguards. The people are friendly and helpful in all the stores we visited. The town has a quiet, laid back fell that is very relaxing. We are renting a house and all the houses... More
