Holden Beach, NC

Holden Beach Long thought as one of North Carolinas most beautiful barrier islands, Holden Beach residents are working hard to keep it that way by instituting laws to protect the natural beauty and serenity of the island well through the next century.

This commitment to preservation has made Holden Beach a favorite destination for retirees seeking the solitude of a small seaside town.

But thanks to a modern bridge, completed in 1986, Holden Beach offers the best of an isolated beachfront community and all the conveniences of the modern world with Wilmington just over 30 minutes away by car.

The tiny island remained in the Holden family, after it was purchased from the Crown prior to the Revolutionary War. In 1969 the island was sold and incorporated with the stipulation that commercial development be kept to a minimum. Except for a few small, locally owned stores, a post office, and meager dining establishments ? just enough to sustain residents on a day-to-day basis - the island has been able to repel the hordes of commercial chains and developments known to swarm beach communities.

Though not particularly inviting to the commercial world, Holden Beach has embraced those who share a love for everything beachfront communities have to offer. The island provides ample parking for beachgoers, along with numerous public showers and handicap ramps, making it possible for wheelchair bound visitors to have easy access to the warm waters of the Atlantic.

Holden Beach is also one of the largest nesting areas and a sanctuary for the endangered Loggerhead sea turtle. Residents take great pride in this fact, and considerable measures are taken to protect nests on the beach and the hatchlings until they are big enough to fend for themselves.

Though the island may be secluded, void of many of the trappings of the outside world, there is still plenty to do. The island offers a fishing pier, marina and boat landing, and some of the world's finest golf courses are less than an hour away at Myrtle Beach.
