How much should I pay for parking meters at the beaches?

Amy Hotz

Not long ago you could get to the beach early and find a free parking space. Now, you’d better bring your piggy bank.

During the season, the only free parking spaces at Wrightsville Beach are at Town Hall, 321 Causeway Drive, Wrightsville Beach [Map this]; the boat ramp beside the drawbridge; and along Old Causeway Drive. None of those areas are convenient for beachgoers.

Near the water, parking costs $1.50 per hour. Some spots allow you to park all day for $8.

Carolina Beach also has parking fees in effect for the area around the beach from April 1-Oct. 31. Click here for details.

If you want to avoid the headache altogether, head down the road to Kure Beach or Fort Fisher, where all parking is free and is usually more abundant than at the other beaches.
