Fall Outdoor Activities on Pleasure Island

Autumn is one of the best times of year to get out and get active on Pleasure Island. The air is cool and crisp, and the humidity and summertime crowds have eased up. While the ocean waters may be a little brisker this time of year, there are still plenty of ways to frolic and stay fit in the fall. Here are our top picks for outdoor pursuits during the coast’s finest season:


Whether you bring your own bicycle or rent one here, you'll find miles of well-maintained, flat roads on which to explore the entire island. The 16-mile round trip Pleasure Island Pedal Route starts at the state boat launch site at Snow's Cut and traverses down to Fort Fisher State Park. Along the way, you can ride the bike trail at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, which winds through a maritime forest near the Ft. Fisher-to-Southport Ferry Landing.
