    Accommodations

    Atlantic Towers has one- and two-bedroom condominium units all with balconies on the ocean. All bedrooms have at least a queen-size bed, and all units have a pull out queen-size sleeper in the living room. Most units have a set of bunk beds in an alcove in the hallway. Thus, most of the one-bedroom units can sleep 6 and the two-bedroom units can sleep 8. The two-bedroom units have two bathrooms. There is some variation in how units are equipped for sleeping, so be sure to confirm the arrangement you want when making reservations.

    The room rates per night after taxes are: One-bedroom $148.50, and two-bedroom $207.00. Rates may vary. For reservations, call 1-800-232-2440 (1-800-BEACH-40) or 1-910-458-8313.

    Towels and linens are provided, but we are asked to bring our own beach towels, paper towels and dish soap. Each unit has a fully equipped kitchen including cookware and dinnerware, as well as a microwave oven and coffee pot. The facility has a club room that opens onto the pool deck that we will be able to use (for the all-night bridge game or musicale – Bring your favorite musical instrument!).

    Alternative Accommodations

    There are a broad array of rental accommodations at Carolina Beach, if preferred.

    For those interested in camping, there is a campground at Carolina Beach State Park, just over the bridge as you enter Carolina Beach. The park has 83 camp sites, each with a table and grill. They are available on a first-come-first-served basis and rent for $20 per night.

    Directions

    The most direct route is to follow Interstate I-40 to its end in Wilmington where it becomes NC Route 132. This in turn merges with US Route 421 to Carolina Beach. Go through “downtown” Carolina Beach and curve around a large lake (on your right). About one mile further, just before entering the town of Kure Beach, are three white high-rise buildings on the ocean side. Atlantic Towers is the last of those buildings.
