We love Oak Island NC. Just a great beach to relax and get away from the crowded beaches. Quite and great for baby boomers to get away from it all. Southport is just over the bridge from the island has all you need for a great stay. There is the Island Way eatery which is on the ocean and food... More

We were looking for a house to rent at the beach this summer. We toured numerous houses and made a decision on which one to rent.

This time of year it's pretty chilly but if you are looking for peace and quiet then you cant beat it. completely deserted beach for miles. plenty of restaurants on the main rd. depending on your choice. Now have aerial pictures with my new quad copter and the view of unspoiled miles of beach .

i have to admit, when driving to the oak island beach today, I wasn't expecting much. I just wanted to see the ocean. But I was pleasantly surprised on the beauty, cleanliness and overall quality of the beach. The sand was soft, the water was pretty and there were several rental houses along the road to stay in. The beach... More

If you're looking to party this is not the right beach for you! We were able to rent an ocean front home with a pool and made our own fun. For daily activities I suggest: the Oak Island Light house, riding the ferry to Bald head island and touring the island with rented golf carts (call and reserve in advance..these... More

Oak Island beach is a great beach if want to swim, surf, fish or just relax. No out of control drunkeness, cheesy hotels, kids running wild. Great family beach with permanent residents and rentals. For now free parking with easy beach access. Dog friendly too. Plenty of places to eat off the beach and a couple of restaurants on the... More

The fish were running and the beach was cluttered with fisherman. Now, if you love to fish, it was a perfect time to be on the beaches. We like to shell and walk and photograph. Fisherman set up there lines away from water line, so you are constantly ducking under lines. Makes for a distracting walk. We love the beaches... More
