Easiest Way to Day Trip to the Beach

Editor’s note: Original post date was June 2018. Pricing may have changed.

Cape Fear Beach Rentals is a beach equipment company servicing Wrightsville Beach and Figure Eight Island.  They provide everything from beach chairs and umbrellas, 10x10 tents, to beach games and sand toys.  I simply went online, selected what I needed for the day, gave the address of the public beach access (listed conveniently on their web site), and voila-- everything was set-up and awaiting our arrival.  After our fun-filled day, I sent a text and they came to break everything down. It was my easiest day trip to the beach on record.

My grand total was $45 to rent an umbrella, two comfortable beach chairs, and a bag of sand toys.  Money well spent.


I ordered my equipment two days before our scheduled day trip, but I know Cape Fear Beach Rentals does their best to accommodate day-of requests.  You can check out their Facebook page to see their rental options in action.

Cape Fear Rentals also provides equipment for those renting houses at Wrightsville Beach.  Something I will consider the next time we vacation at the beach.

Bottom Line: I will never day trip to the beach again without using Cape Fear Beach Rentals.
