If Bogue Banks, North Carolina, is your vacation destination, you’re in for lots of beach fun, hiking, and biking. These are some of the main things to do in Atlantic Beach, one of the five communities comprising this area and one of the most visited towns on what is known as North Carolina’s Crystal Coast.
The good news is that you won’t have to cart your stuff from home! You’ll find a few rental shops in the area that provide everything from beach chairs to wheelchairs. And, many Atlantic Beach equipment rentals are not far from Atlantic Beach vacation rentals, so getting Atlantic Beach chair rentals and other items is easy and convenient.
Let’s explore rental shops in and around Atlantic Beach, as well as Atlantic Beach vacation rentals, so you’re familiar with where to stay and where to rent the equipment you need to enjoy your activities fully.
Ocean Atlantic Rentals
Relax on the beach in style! Ocean Atlantic Rentals in Point Harbor has high-quality classic beach chairs, beach bum chairs, and aluminum beach chairs. Recline in four different positions in the Classic, sit low and recline almost entirely in the beach bum option, or grab the lightweight aluminum beach chair that’s easy to carry. You can also get a footrest (chaise) add-on for full relaxation mode!
Ocean Atlantic Rentals also has umbrellas so you can take a break from the rays. Umbrella/chair packages include anywhere from one to six umbrellas and anywhere from two to 12 chairs. No matter how big or small your group is, you can find the perfect package for everyone. Packages range from $169 – $220. A couples’ package includes an eight-foot Ultimate Umbrella, two chairs, and two bodyboards for $109 (a savings of $21).
You can add on a cooler, umbrella table, footrests, or additional umbrellas and chairs for any package. Umbrella stands and anchors can also be rented, as can utility carts and cargo wagons. While the wagon is best used to transport beach equipment on hard surfaces, the utility cart has inflatable wheels for hauling across the sand.
Ocean Atlantic Rentals offers an on-the-beach setup for oceanfront Atlantic Beach vacation rentals with beach access as part of their service.
In addition, Ocean Atlantic Rentals has contact information about how you can get a beach wheelchair, so if you’re traveling with an elderly family member or someone unable to navigate the beach, they too can enjoy the sun and sand. The wide, large tires make it easy to push on the soft, uneven surface. You will be put in touch with local fire departments, visitor centers, or state parks to get more details about using a beach wheelchair.
If you’re traveling with little ones, you know how much it takes to pack everything you need. If you would rather leave it all home or if you forgot an item, Ocean Atlantic Rentals is sure to have what you need. You can rent cribs, high chairs, strollers, and baby gates. Imagine the room you’ll have in the car if you don’t have to travel with all of that! The parent package is a great value: full-size crib, high chair, and two gates for $110.
You can also rent bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, surfboards, gas grills, fans, tables, and golf carts. Ocean Atlantic Rentals often runs specials during the season, so be sure to check for any value packages or other savings opportunities on all rentals.
Beach Butler Rentals
When it comes to renting beach chairs, umbrellas, baby gear, bikes, and water sports equipment in Atlantic Beach, you’ll be glad the “Butler” did it!

Free delivery within the Emerald Isle area. Their most popular rental items include beach bikes, baby equipment (including strollers, high chairs, and cribs), beach chairs, coolers, and more.

Rentals are available for either a one- or two-week rental period, which is incredibly convenient for those travelers planning a more extended stay in the area. Additionally, they do everything they can to get you your items on the same day you order them. Of course, items vary by price, but most items tend to fall around $50 for a week-long rental.
