4 Reasons To Book Your Beach Vacation at Our Ocean Ridge Collection

If you are considering spending your next vacation in Atlantic Beach, NC, then there is no better place to book your stay than at one of Spectrum Properties Ocean Ridge Collection rentals. These luxurious rentals give you a breathtaking ocean view with all the amenities you would need for your time away from home.

The best part of booking one of our Ocean Ridge homes is that you are within walking distance from the beach! Don’t worry about getting all of that sand in your car. Simply walk out your door to enjoy the white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters of our gorgeous coastline. Atlantic Beach offers plenty of activities to entertain the whole family both on and off the beach. 

The Perfect Location

Nestled along the coastal roads of Atlantic Beach is our Ocean Ridge Collection, which boasts beautiful homes that can sleep between 8 and 12 people. Each home will give you the ideal beach vacation with either oceanfront luxury or idyllic ocean views and amazing indoor and outdoor spaces.

Patios and decks provide the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee listening to the rolling waves while the outdoor grills allow for the perfect evening barbeque. If you have children accompanying you or just prefer being poolside to cool off instead of the ocean, some of our rentals have private pools. Take a dip in the cool water, relax in a float or read a book in a lounge chair while the children swim. When you want to enjoy the beach, just walk out over the dunes and it will be no wonder why Coastal Living magazine named Atlantic Beach one of their “Best Beaches”. 

Local Activities on Land

While you may have been attracted to come to the Crystal Coast because of the beach, there are plenty of other activities to keep you entertained after you dry off and venture out. 

Right in the heart of town is the Atlantic Beach Town Park, which features a splash pad for kids, a playground, a small miniature golf course and even a skate park for skateboards, bikes and rollerblading. During the summer months, you can bring your own chair and enjoy a free outdoor movie and enjoy treats from the concession stand.

If you prefer newer movies, the Atlantic Station Cinema is right across the street featuring the latest blockbusters. Make sure to stop next door after your movie to enjoy some ice cream from AB Icecream and Candy Shop. For the more adventurous members of your vacation party, stop into Battleworks for some Laser Tag fun!

For exercise, enjoy the scenery with one of our many walking trails or head down to Fort Macon State Park to enjoy their trails that run over the dunes and take a tour of the Fort and learn all about its vast history. 

Local Activities on Water

To experience the most of your time at the beach, make sure to try some of the rental services nearby such as AB Watersport. You can rent paddleboards, kayaks, jet skis and even a boat to cruise the waterways and to take advantage of your time on our coast.

Experience the best fishing on the east coast with one of Atlantic Beach’s fishing charters that can pair you with experts in getting a bite on your line. You can even grab a pole and get some lures, bait and all the essentials from one of our many tackle shops or simply take it back to your rental to do some surf fishing right from the backyard of your home.

If you have ever wanted to surf, now would be your chance! Check out Marsh’s Surf Shop to get signed up for one of their summer lessons led by a multiple title winner, which will be a memorable experience. 

Shop and Dine

Of course they also offer some of the classic surf brands such as Quicksilver, Roxy, Billabong, Roark, and many more. They could very well be your one stop shop for all members of your family.
