Next up for places to surf when visiting Carolina Beach is the North End.. The north end is a popular place for both tourists and locals to visit because you can drive on the beach. If you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle (dont try it without one) you can drive out for the day or camp out for the night.. It is also known as Freeman Park..This can be a popular spot for surfers when the tide is high because of the ocean floor. Surfing and Paddle Board lessons are fun to take here because of the sheer amount of room you have to learn.. Pets are welcome as well! Just be careful on the 3 main holidays… It gets busy!
