The closest beach is Wrightsville Beach and is approximately 6 miles or 10-15 minutes.
What they said.
Sometimes the traffic is a bit heavy, but otherwise it's no more than 10 minutes to the closest possible beach.
We went to Carolina Beach for the music on the beach and it took us right at 20 minutes to get there ! I think Wrightsville Beach is a little closer, I'm not sure though! I must say it was a great place to stay !
