For the outdoor enthusiast Caswell Beach and the South Brunswick Beaches offer pleasant weather year round, great fishing 12 months of the year, over 30 golf courses all within a 5 to 35 minute drive, the lovely Intracoastal Waterway & Cape Fear River, and 5 beautiful white sandy beaches.
The Intracoastal Waterway, Cape Fear River, and Lockwood Folly River saltwater savanna and tidal marshes abound with nature. You will get excited when you see a pod of playful porpoise swimming along the mouth of the Cape Fear River. You will not be able to take your eyes off the graceful Ospreys as they dive into the water and snare a big fish in their tylons to feast on. You will have fun casting your net over large schools of bait fish that swim by your dock, and delight when you pull up your crab trap full of big delicious blue crabs. If you want fresh clam chowder for dinner, just jump in your canoe or boat and go clamming for an hour. If you want Flounder for dinner, catch a big one off your dock. If your lucky enough to live in Caswell Beach, you’re lucky enough.
