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!

Stage 1 - Water Conservation Alert: A Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert was instituted for all customers of the Brunswick County public water system, including Holden Beach on May 28, 2019, due to record water demand caused by excessive temperatures, lack of rain and an increased number of visitors to Brunswick County. The County has notified us that as a result of customers’ voluntary conservation measures, combined with a break in the drought conditions, water demand has been reduced to more manageable levels. The Stage 1 Water Conservation Alert will remain in force because hot, dry conditions are expected to return as we approach the summer season. The County asks that everyone continue to use water wisely. Click here to view the County's press release which details ways residents can voluntarily help with conservation methods. Residents will be notified if any other conservation measures are needed and when the restrictions are no longer required.

Thanks for your help in conserving water!
