Ever wanted to see a real live Venus fly trap?! Well this is the place! Nature trails and hiking located on the quiet side of the island. Picnic, nature 100% protected island style. Never know what you will see.... but on a trail in there are live Venus Fly traps!! If you go during July and aug. please take extra water with you and pace your self. Very humid hiking conditions.

With a marina providing access to some of North Carolina's best fishing spots, a secluded camping area and miles of hiking trails—did I mention the Venus flytrap - one of the world's most unique carnivorous plants — lives here? It's no wonder Carolina Beach State Park is a popular destination.

Only a mile from the house this is a treasure in our back yard. Hiking, walking, picnicking, sightseeing. There is also kayak and SUP rentals right at the marina.

This is a unique place off the cape fear river and the inter-coastal waterway. No swimming allowed because of the strong currents.

Visit Carolina Beach State Park and walk the trails, looking for the rare Venus Fly Trap or walking to Sugar Loaf, a Cape Fear River landmark used by mariners for 3 centuries(2m hike)
