With mild temperatures and fewer crowds, take advantage of fall to experience Kure Beach’s outdoor adventures like a local. Embark on a guided kayak tour to Shark Tooth Island and search for the much-coveted shark teeth. Take time to unwind with a picnic in the park or stroll along nearly six miles of pristine shore at Fort Fisher State Recreation Area. Find your fall flow with Kure Beach Yoga, offering classes on the pier or at Kure Beach Ocean Front Park. Experience the outdoors this autumn at a beach unlike any other.
