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.
