Masonboro Island - accessible only by boat, the beaches are pristine, and the island offers many beautiful nature trails.
Topsail Island - this island is a thin slice of land between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic, with the three beach towns of North Topsail Beach, Topsail Beach, and Surf City. The island has 26 miles of beach and water on three sides.
Bald Head Island - only 12,000 acres, 10,000 of which are protected lands, beach go-ers enjoy sandy beaches and palm trees. Water sports are popular here, along with golf or touring the 200-year-old lighthouse Old Baldy. Access these beaches by ferry from Southport and grab a golf cart as there are no cars on the island.
Fort Fisher State Recreation Area - six miles of public beach sit at the southern end of what locals call "Pleasure Island" which also includes Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. In addition to a large public parking lot, beach access points, and four-wheel-drive vehicle access with seasonal permits, Fort Fisher offers a state aquarium, Civil War historic site, and a boat ramp.
"We refreshed the Canines for Service offices and then we got to do the fun part: walking the dogs. RED Day encourages the world-wide Keller Williams family to contribute in their communities by 'Renewing, Energizing, and Donating,' and KBT took that to heart with a $5000 donation to the CFS facility improvement project, along with a commitment to fund the balance of the dog quarantine room rehab before the end of this year," says Becky Brown, KBT co-owner. (Click the video to see the KBT team in action.)
We are excited to welcome Carey Patrick, Broker/Realtor®, to the team. Carey has deep ties to the Bladen and Brunswick County areas, and lives in Holden Beach. She loves spending time on the ocean, fishing and boating.
