South of Wilmington lies the area know as Pleasure Island. Technically, peninsula, Pleasure Island is separated from the mainland by Snows Cut, which is a man-made waterway connecting the Intercoastal Waterway to the Cape Fear River. Pleasure Island consists of Carolina Beach, a popular vacation destination for tourists from all over the country, Kure Beach, which is an upscale are of independent beach homes and high-end rental properties. And then there is Ft. Fisher, which is a park and historic site where you will find the NC Aquarium.
You can’t go wrong if you know where the locals go… and that’s to The Gulfstream for good food, good service good prices. From breakfast choices to sandwiches and burgers, to seafood and entrees made just like home, Gulfstream is a Carolina Beach staple.
