Once we visited here we fell in love with it. The beaches are never crowded and always clean. If you time it right you can see turtles hatch and make their way to the ocean. My wife likes sunbathing here and our kids play in the surf or make sand castles. We also like looking for shells and shark teeth.... More

We visit Oak Island every summer because of how much we love the beach down here! It's clean, calm, and GORGEOUS! We live near the Jersey Shore and these beaches don't even compare. We love the private feeling and the "calm" beach goers. Everyone is there to enjoy the experience and respects everyone else's desire to do the same. (It's... More

Really neat for us inlanders to observe tides in and out. The beaches shorten and widen a good deal, which is neat to watch. Wave action is fun and good sizes.

We had a place right on the beach. The sun was there . The beach was spacious enough to not feel crowded. And as with most beaches .. a terrific ocean view. We had a few storms roll through and even those were spectacular

I went on a day trip with my pooch. I wanted to take her to a pet friendly beach. This was an awesome place. It wasn't crowded at all. The water was clear and inviting. However, during my visit, I found that MY dog does not like the beach! It was still a great experience. I would definitely recommend.
