As a coastal town, Holden Beach provides long stretches of powdery sand that provide a great landscape to hunt for treasures, from sand dollars to seashells and even aged sea glass, you can easily spend a day scouring the shores for a new treasure. Catch a wave and learn to surf, whether you choose to learn solo or pick up a lesson at one of the surfing schools, or for those who prefer a little less adrenaline, boogie boarding is also wildly popular amongst both locals and tourists. If you have time to break away from your sandcastle building, by obtaining a fishing license you can head to the pier where you can rent poles and equipment, practice your cast, and if you’re lucky, reel in a great catch.

Other Activities

Oftentimes nearby attractions and activities are overlooked in beach towns simply because the focus is always on the beach, however, when it comes to Holden Beach, the list of activities seems endless. Take a break from the sand and slip and slide through Magic Mountain Waterslides, with thrills for all ages, everyone within your family is sure to have a great time.
