Parking was a little tricky, we would see signs that said Public but when we went to pull it, you had to have a town sticker. You can park anywhere on the... More

The Point is by far the best place to watch the sunset. Because of the way the point sticks out you actually can watch the sun sink low in the sky. This beach is also loaded with shells. It is a great spot to walk at the end of a day.

We stayed at Caswell Beach on Oak Island and the oceanfront homes sit way back from the ocean. This is good for the owners because you have that protection from storm erosion but I prefer to be right on the ocean where I can watch the waves. If you were on the top deck of the cottage we rented you... More

I wish they had rented umbrella stands they set up you could rent for the day or 1/2 day. Liked the ice cream push cart that goes up and down the beach.

Great family beach but you need to be a dog lover. Plenty of pets and all that goes along with them. We're dog lovers so no issue between the beaches, food and proximity to Southport there's not many better places for a vacation.

The beach was very calm and serene when we first got to it in the morning. By midafternoon, it was packed just like we were at Myrtle Beach. We will definitely return to Oak Island.

The beach was quiet and not crowded at all. Saw lots of dolphin activity as well. No loud music or obnoxious people on the beach while I was there.

Oak Island beach is absolutely wonderful. More residential than commercial, not too crowded and everyone is friendly. The best attraction in the world is just the ocean rolling in and it is beautiful here.
