Town of Holden Beach

Welcome to the Town of Holden Beach, nationally recognized as one of the premier "Family Beaches" in the United States. Holden Beach is proud of what we do not have. We are primarily a residential community, with a small commercial area. Holden Beach is a great place to relax, enjoy the beach and the natural wildlife that surrounds us.

Clean water, blue skies and lots of family fun. Come experience it for yourself.



Terminal Groin: The Corps of Engineers has released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Holden Beach East End Shore Protection Project. Click here to view the FEIS. More information can be found on the Corps' website by clicking here.

FEMA Flood Maps: The Town has received approval from FEMA for revisions to the Holden Beach Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM). These map revisions will be effective August 28, 2018 once the Town formally updates our local ordinances. The Town staff is working on an implementation schedule and anticipates being able to use the new maps for construction in late May. These maps may be viewed at

Please remember that until the full review and final documents are officially completed there may be a change. However, currently the Town of Holden Beach is moving ahead in good faith with assurance that after years of anticipation, the end is near. August 28, 2018 will be here before we know it.
