Kid-Friendly Fun in NC’s Brunswick Islands

The six family-friendly beaches of the Brunswick Islands offer big time fun for kids of all ages. The excitement of exploring tidal pools, playing beach games and building sandcastles never gets old. Nor does the thrill of spotting dolphins diving in the waves, a baby sea turtle making its first journey to the ocean or ghost crabs scurrying after nightfall. All this and more makes NC’s Brunswick Islands one of the best places to be a kid on vacation. 

But there’s more than just the good old-fashioned fun that comes with 45 miles of shoreline. Our islands and towns are home to many exciting attractions to keep the kids entertained. We’ve got lighthouses, a Swamp Park, museums and a planetarium, miniature golf, day camps, splash pads, nature parks and so much more. Explore our events page for family friendly activities like summer concerts and movies in the park. And if you're looking for something to do with all the shells the family collects during your stay, check out these easy coastal craft projects.

If you’ve got an active and adventurous crew, sign up for surf lessons, golf lessons, a kayak excursion, charter fishing or an adventure cruise to spot dolphins

The options are truly endless. Explore them all!
