I highly recommend being at the lighthouse on Oak Island. It is a great view of all that is around you and just a beautiful time out for family friends and kids. So don't wait ! Come on down with the kids !

The Oak Island Lighthouse was closed due to COVID restrictions. We still enjoyed taking pictures in front of it. The best view is from the small pier/walkway across the street.

Still great to see up close, it was closed when we visited this past weekend. It does say you can schedule a tour 2 weeks in advance. The boardwalk however is being rebuilt and the beach access parking is closed. That leaves 2 regular parking spots and 1 handicap spot to visit.

I had been to Oak Island quite a few times but had never made a stop at the lighthouse. It's definitely a nice place to visit for a little stroll and some photo opportunities. There is a parking lot and a lovely boardwalk.

We parked at the beach access parking lot and walked to the lighthouse. The first one I have ever seen up close. It was closed due to Covid but you can still enjoy it from a distance.
