Great family beach. Almost all residential with very little commercial (a couple of stores and 3 restaurants) on the island. Wide beaches and not so crowded even in high season.

I've been to several beaches up and down the east coast, from Delaware to Florida. Holden Beach is BY FAR the BEST beach I have EVER been to. We rented a beach house on the oceanfront, and it was worth every penny. There are rentals to accommodate all families and all wallets! A short drive to North Myrtle and Wilmington, so the action can be found, if that's what you want. You want a family-friendly, relaxed, clean, beautiful, non-crowded beach? This one is for you! Can't wait to make the reservations for the next trip!!

A fantastic, laid back beach vacation. a perfect place if you like to swim, ride waves, fish, and takes walks on the beach. An east coast "gem".

Beautiful beach with soft gentle waves of warm water. Traffic very minimal. Family style beach. very quiet with well behaved people on beachNot commercial at all. If you want to truly get away from it all go here. But if you must go to get ice cream and go out to eat a short drive will get you there

Very quiet so beach uncrowded. Just a nice laid back place to go every year. Enough restaurants if you need them.
