2023 Carolina Beach Realty Photo Contest Grand Prize Winner Is.....

We’re thrilled to share the exciting results of our 2023 Carolina Beach Realty Photo Contest, a celebration of beauty and joy captured by Pleasure Island visitors. From June to October, we invited all the photography enthusiasts out there to share the vacation moments for a chance to win big – $300 off a future stay with us! 

We were flooded with over 100 incredible entries that truly showcased the essence of what it feels like to vacation in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. From sunrise strolls to sunset silhouettes, every photo shared a unique story of the joy vacationing in our area brings. 

After much debate and a whole lot of love for each entry, our dedicated team had the tough task of choosing just one winner.  

Drumroll, please! 

And the Grand Prize goes to… 


Victoria Bare for “Early Risers 😊 


Victoria’s photo captured the magic of mornings here at the beach, with hues of dawn reflecting on the shoreline. It wasn’t just a photo, it was a story that spoke to us, and we’re beyond thrilled to declare it the winning shot.  

We’d like to give a big shout out to everyone who participated! Your photos filled our days with sunshine and salty breezes. Keep the good vibes rolling, and stay tuned for the photo contest to take place again next summer!
