Just past the cascading waterfall entrance, the Palmetto Creek amenities rich neighborhood offers a resort style pool, putting green, boardwalks, kayak launch, fitness center, outdoor pavilion, and clubhouse. The gated community is conveniently located between Southport, Holden Beach, and the Wilmington-Myrtle Beach corridor, Highway 17.

Residents of the gated community of Palmetto Creek of the Carolinas enjoy the nature trails for walking and cycling along breezy palm trees. It’s a pedestrian paradise for outdoor activities. Take time to fish or kayak on the ponds too!  Six individual neighborhoods give homebuyers plenty of options for selecting their dream home.

Brunswick County is not only home to miles of beautiful coastline, but it also houses a fascinating nature preserve known as the Myrtle Head Savanna. A quick jaunt up Highway 211 from Palmetto Creek will bring sightseers right into the heart of The Green Swamp.  But, have no fear, no monster lives here.  The Green Swamp and Myrtle Head Savanna feature Eastern North Carolina’s indigenous venus flytrap, numerous species of orchids, and rare animals.
