Holden Beach

The evening and morning sky in Holden Beach, right as the sun begins to make its journey either to dusk or to dawn, always

captivates those who are able to watch with astonishment as a million iridescent crystals appear over the water. While there is no award for the most beautiful sunrises or sunsets, visitors and locals of these white, sandy shores always comment on this breathtaking phenomenon. The location of this beach, running east to west, gives the appearance of the sun rising from the ocean and following the sandy shores until it sets back into the ocean. The dunes and marshlands offer a colorful backdrop to the brilliance of the colorful and ever-changing sky. In these moments, one feels as if Holden Beach transforms into the most peaceful and tranquil place in the world.

With eight miles of beautiful beaches and a handful of restaurants and stores, Holden Beach offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for families and friends. There’s always something fun to do whether you enjoy water activities such as boating, fishing or touring the Intracoastal Waterway or shelling, clamming or building sand castles. As you explore the ever-growing mainland just over the bridge, you’ll find a constant growth of stores, restaurants, amusements as well as seafood houses and marinas. A new shopping center offers a grocery store, movie rental store, ice cream & soda shop, Chinese restaurant as well as a Subway to name a few.

At its widest point, Holden Beach is just one half of a mile wide. As a result, the majority of the area’s homes have picture-perfect views of the Atlantic Ocean; and most of ocean front homes showcase views of the canals and or marshes from the outside decks and windows. The homes are carefully constructed to fit almost everyone’s need. Many of the beach access points are designed the same way. Holden Beach also provides handicap accessibility to the beach through ramps as well as handicapped-equipped restrooms and showers. This once thriving fishing village has transitioned into a prosperous beach community with a growing tourism-based commerce.

Holden Beach’s continuous growth in both people and properties comes as no surprise to those who live in the beautiful coastal area. Yet the addition doesn’t detract from the small-town feel and southern hospitality embodied by this charming community. Its ideal location between Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Wilmington, North Carolina attracts many who want to live the coastal lifestyle without the crowds, bumper-to-bumper traffic or bright neon lights. The peace and serenity of this south-eastern region has a resonance that will last for many more years to come.
