We LOVE_ LOVE _ LOVE these beaches- they are clean, clam and never crowded. Although this is the year of the shark attacks- there were no signs of anything the week we were here- lots of folks looking out though. Word- there are no lifeguards-----we did see rays and dolphin!

Among the best beaches we've ever vacationed at. Clean, quiet, crowd-free and breezy. Very laid-back old fashioned seaside island. No big condos or hotels. Loved it

The beach is nice, the people are nice, its not a crowed area and it was great for a vacation. You see a lot of people walking the beach early morning and all seem very nice. The beach was clean and taken care of. We got up early one day to see the sun rise and while watching, there were... More

Came for a long weekend in late July (25-27)... Love coming here. The beaches very popular but there is plenty of space between umbrella, canopies etc. Not really sure why people want to bring their dogs to just sit in the sun....but you see a lot of people dragging their poor little pups around. Lots of space for kids to... More

Visited Oak Island in June for a long weekend, this was my first time here and was pleasantly surprised how nice and laid back it was. The beaches were not crowded and it was nice not to be sitting on top of other people like many of the beaches in the north east. The beaches are clean and they provide... More

One of the greatest beaches to vacation in North Carolina. The island is beautiful, clean, and has very friendly people.

You can't beat the cleanliness and well maintained beaches of Oak Island. Great fishing, swimming, sun bathing, and plenty of space for the whole family to enjoy. We love the wildlife here-from birds to sea turtle nests-you'll love it. We have been coming here for several years now and we always book as far in advance as we can.

I liked the serenity and peacefulness - It's like you have gone to heaven. "The only thing I disliked was when we had to leave and go home.
