Enclosed by the Atlantic Ocean, Atlantic Beach is a barrier island and a really small town in Carteret County in North Carolina. This county has nine communities, five of which are situated on Bogue Banks but all five have a virtually similar feel. However, none gets the same traffic as the Atlantic. There is a balance between the attractions and businesses here. Furthermore, out of all the coastal communities, Atlantic Beach lies at the center. It is also nearby the local attractions which include, Fort Macon State Park - a free-to-visit remembrance of the great American Civil War, North Carolina Maritime Museum, Snorkeling and Charter tours, and the AB Loop - a pedestrian trail that runs through the whole Atlantic Beach town. The climate goes nearly parallel throughout the year, and since Atlantic Beach is totally surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, the winters are also not as harsh as other counties in this state. Continue reading this article if you’re a travel enthusiast because our listing will cover various vacation rentals available in Atlantic Beach.
