Oak Island is a great place to visit because the beaches are pretty, the people are nice and the area is still not commercialized like many areas are becoming. There are no fast food places like McDonald's but there are many reasonably priced options available and there is some fine dining too. You won't see any high rise hotels on... More

We really enjoyed our stay on Oak Island, and when it came to the beaches, it was extremely nice to have parking at almost every access point. Many beaches are so difficult to find parking, but that was a great advantage here. The beach itself was clean, quiet and only lightly populated. Granted we were here in April, so the... More

I love the Oak Island beaches most when it is turtle time...lights out and all! Right now it's just barely spring and I enjoy walking the beach and watching the birds, sub and waves. They are clean, pet friendly and have great parking options.

My home and the best beach. It's quaint, quiet, and still somewhat natural. There are no Ferris wheels or roller coasters. It's a great get away.

We travel to this area at least (4) times a year to see family and fiends. All I can say is Great area, Great people, peaceful and quiet. Perfect get away! I would recommend that anyone who hasn't been here, go! If you have been here, go back!

Oak Island has great family beaches and local restaurants. South Port is also a great little town about 8 miles away. Lots of shops and more restaurants. Travelers enjoy fishing, golf & just getting away from it all. Beautiful sunsets and natural beach area.

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 .
