Lodging in the Atlantic Beach NC Area

For the true experience of Atlantic Beach, nothing tops a stay at Oceanana Family Resort.

Oceanana also has one of the town’s two fishing piers, so come out and watch the locals bring in fresh fish, or cast out and try your luck! The town’s other fishing pier belongs to the prestigious Sheraton Hotel.  Standing proudly over the scenery as one of the largest structures on the island, The Sheraton offers everything a beachgoer would want – swimming pools, a fishing pier, volley and bocce ball, and access to the Crystal Coast Country Club’s golf and tennis courses – all in addition to any room amenity requested.  The Sheraton is host to many daily events and activities in the summer, as well as to the Carolina Kite Festival in the fall. Awaken in your nautical-themed suite and step out onto your own private patio to listen to the waves – It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
The Seahawk Motor Lodge & Villas, just west of the Sheraton, provides a quaint and quiet stay for the weary traveler.  Its cabin-like aesthetic makes for a cozy, rustic atmosphere, but without sacrificing the spoils of beachfront property.  Try the cottage suite – complete with its own kitchen and private patio – to really feel at home on the Crystal Coast.  The Seahawk even boasts a private grilling area – perfect after a stop by any of the local fish markets, or even for preparing your own prized catch after a day behind the rod and reel!
