Peace, serenity, and mustangs in Carova
Carova beach offers families, friends, and couples a secluded retreat where peace and relaxation can be enjoyed completely without disturbance. If this is too much peace and relaxation, there is parasailing over the Atlantic, mini golf, and the Corolla Amusement park which are all in driving distance. After such a relaxing vacation observing nature and taking it slow, it will be hard for guests to head back to reality, However, you can always return to this beach community the next summer.
