Carolina Beach will lift all additional restrictions Friday giving visitors full access to beach

CAROLINA BEACH — Short term rentals, hotels, parking, and beach access will all be restored in Carolina Beach soon.

The restrictions were put in place earlier this year in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and have been incrementally lifted, but things like parking and rental restrictions have continued.

“Effective Friday, May 8, 2020, at 5:00 p.m., Carolina Beach will lift all Town imposed restrictions including short-term rentals, public parking, and beach activities,” according to a town press release.

It is the first beach town in the county to announce a full lift on additional bans, other towns like Kure Beach and Wrightsville Beach have not yet announced their plans.

“The Town encourages all to continue practicing social distancing and safety guidelines in public places as recommended by the CDC and other public health officials,” the release concludes.

The town, like the rest of the state, is still under Governor Roy Cooper’s stay-at-home order. Starting Friday at 5 p.m. Cooper’s order moves into a new phase, which allows more businesses to open, but which will continue to keep restaurant dining rooms, bars, entertainment facilities, and personal care businesses like hair and nail salons, massage therapists, tattoo parlors, and others closed.
