Holden Beach Real Estate

Seeking your Ideal second home in Brunswick County?  We encourage you to contact us at Carolina Plantations to learn more about the area’s most popular “family beach community” of Holden Beach.

Holden Beach

Holden Beach is just a stones’ throw from Shallotte, NC.  So everything you may need is just minutes from this pristine barrier island.  Holden Beach is actually a south facing beach, which means you get sunrises and sunsets.  Being a south-facing beach also means that the ocean is less rough than our east facing beaches.  This makes for a great day or weekend at your beach. 

The island is one of the few in southern NC that does not have a draw-bridge or swinging bridge, so this means no traffic back-ups to get to your beach home.  The bridge rises high over the Intracoastal Waterway, providing great views of the waterway and the Atlantic Ocean.  The island also hosts a navigable inlet that will give any boater quick access to the Atlantic Ocean.

The main street on Holden Beach stretches almost the entire length of the island, so you will have easy access to the quaint shops and restaurants on the island from the east to the west end.  Also, the town of Holden Beach has established community center, a public fishing pier and pavilion for entertainment.

Loggerhead turtles make their nests on this island, which is free of high-rises, neon-lights and that commercial boardwalk feel.  This makes it ideal as a favorite for the family looking to purchase a second home.

Homes, townhomes and condos are available for purchase on the island.  Our team has been representing real estate on this island, and are very educated on all the benefits for the ideal coastal lifestyle.  Contact us at (910) 755-7557 to take a look at Holden Beach and its endless opportunities.
