Fall is my favorite time of year at the beach! The weather is perfect, the water is still warm, there are some good waves, and there are lots of activities happening around the island!
This week I wanted to share some of my favorite things to do (and places to visit) in Kure Beach (next week I’ll hit Carolina Beach)!
My absolute favorite place on the island is the Ft Fisher Basin. It’s fun to watch the ferry cross the Cape Fear River. Within the basin itself is the perfect place to kayak, paddleboard, or even kite surf.
While you are there, be sure to check out the Hermit’s bungalow, or paddle
across to Zeke’s Island for one of the best nature experiences around!
As you are leaving the basin in Ft Fisher, be sure to check out the aquarium…we visit about once a week in the off season.
The new children’s playground is super…and inside we love watching the albino alligator. The staff at the aquarium is awesome…always friendly…and always willing to share their wealth of knowledge with you!
Another great spot in Kure Beach is The Cove in Ft Fisher. This is one of the prettiest beaches around. Live Oak Trees to the west, and rock formations to the North and South make this a truly beautiful spot!
At the traffic light (there is only one) in Kure Beach you’ll find a handful of family-owned businesses to patronize. There are some yummy restaurants to try!
The Kure Beach pier is great for fishing, or for watching people fish. Great souvenirs can be purchased here too.
The Kure Beach business district just has a mellow vibe that keeps you coming back.
I love playing Ms. Pacman and Centipede…so if you look closely you’ll find where you can play too!
A few blocks to the West is the Kure Beach Town Park. There is no shortage of things to do here including great tennis courts, basketball, Bache, and one of the best playgrounds around.
There’s a dog park for Fido, walking trails and a top-notch Frisbee Golf course!
There are a lot of other hidden treasures in Kure Beach including great beach spots, tidal pools, nature trails and more…so get on out there and discover them this Fall!
